Demolition of the Downtown Plaza building set to begin

Main Street sign

Activity is underway to level a building at the corner of Main and Bridge streets known as the Downtown Plaza. This demolition process will take several months to complete from start to finish to ensure disruption to business owners and residents in the area be kept to a minimum.

This week, work is starting inside the building to prepare it for demolition. You will also notice a construction fence going up in the coming days. 

Residents can expect to see construction crews working on cutting and separating the buildings at 5 and 9 S. Main St. the week of Oct. 15. Meanwhile, walls and noticeable structure changes may not be visible to residents until later in the month. 

The demolition process is expected to be complete by the end of the year and residents will still have full access to local businesses in the area during this time, but there will be some alternate pedestrian walkways established due to the closure of some sidewalks in the area.

The Brighton City Council awarded American Demolition the contract to complete this work back in August. 

This site will be home to a future park for Brighton residents to enjoy. The City of Brighton has received a grant from Adams County Open Space to fund a significant portion of the first phase of the park.  

For demolition related questions, please contact Ryan Johnson, Executive Director or Urban Renewal at Inquiries about the future park can be directed to Gary Wardle, Director of Parks and Recreation at
