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
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.
