Excavation underway at Kentucky's long-stalled, controversial Noah's Ark park site

Workers are clearing land in northern Kentucky to build a long-stalled tourist attraction featuring Noah's Ark.

Ken Ham, head of the Christian ministry Answers in Genesis, posted video of the excavation work on his Facebook page this week.

It is the first sign of large-scale construction activity at the site in Grant County since controversial plans for the 510-foot long biblical ark were announced by Answers in Genesis in 2010. The project had been delayed when private donations did not keep pace with the construction timeline.

Answers in Genesis said in a news release that the project also recently secured a federal permit that is allowing construction to proceed. Last month, a state tourism board gave preliminary approval for up to $18 million in tax rebates for the ark attraction.
