Opening date to be announced for Noah’s Ark being built in Kentucky

Construction on a Noah’s Ark attraction in northern Kentucky is sailing along, and the builders say they’re ready to announce an opening date.
    
Answers in Genesis, the Christian ministry leading the project, will make the announcement Thursday at the site in northern Kentucky.
    
The massive, 510-foot-long wooden boat is the $90 million first phase of a planned religious theme park. Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham says work on the bow and stern will begin soon.
    
The state had awarded an $18 million tax incentive to the project before withdrawing it last year over concerns of "religious indoctrination." The ark’s builders are suing in federal court to get the incentive back.
    
Answers in Genesis built the nearby Creation Museum with $27 million in private donations. It opened in 2007.
