LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A project to restore Louisville’s historic Crescent Hill reservoir and gatehouse has finished and will soon be revealed to the public.

The work on the reservoir and the 1879 gatehouse began in 2013.

On Tuesday, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and other officials will officially reopen the property.

The Louisville Water Co. says crews cleaned and restored about 3,000 terra cotta tiles and replaced the slate roof of the gatehouse and the reservoir’s limestone stairs.

The project cost about $2.5 million. The gatehouse, a three-story gothic structure, was designated a Kentucky Historic Site in 2010.
