ST. ALBANS, WV (LOOTPRESS) – The wait is over – the demolition of the former St. Albans Junior High Building is set to begin on May 30th. A news conference will be held on Wednesday, May 17th, at 10:30 am at the former Junior High site to provide further details on the demolition.
The final stages of the project will begin with the necessary abatement by Astar Abatement of Charleston, WV. The abatement process is expected to take two to three weeks. A representative from Astar said, “Safety and efficiency will be of utmost importance throughout this project.”
