Barnes Citizens Garage mostly gone

Posted:

Decatur – Progress continues on the demolition of Barnes Citizens Garage in downtown Decatur.

 

The city had been in talks for more than four years to demolish the building. However, several factors were in the way. 

 

Including complicated demolition because heating and cooling units for the nearby Barnes building sit on the garage roof. The surrounding streets will have lane closures to accommodate the construction.

 

But when this is finally gone the land will become a parking lot for people who work at the Barnes Citizens building.

 

Officials have said the structure will be completely down by the time of the Decatur Celebration.
