WATERTOWN — A section of West Main Street is closed for two more days as another building is demolished.
The city has contracted the demolition of 409 W. Main St., which requires that block to be closed between Leray and Davidson streets during the following time schedule: Friday, Feb. 14 it’ll be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The first building, at 403 W. Main St., was torn down earlier this week. Both buildings were considered unsafe by the city’s code enforcement office because leaky roofs had caused so much damage inside the buildings. Code enforcement officials said the brick just crumbled when cranes started demolition.
Demolition on the 409 W. Main St. building began shortly after 11 a.m. Friday. A crane started to slowly chomp away at the back side of the building.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during construction.
