NMU's Carey Hall demolition begins
(MARQUETTE)- Carey Hall, on Northern Michigan University's campus, will soon be just a memory.
WLUC-TV reports that after looking at ways to re-use the facility it was decided that the best course of action is to demolish the building.
Demolition work began Monday and will be going on for the rest of the week.
The debris is being soaked with water to keep the dust to a minimum.
Crews are also monitoring decibel levels around the project.
According to NMU engineer Steve Labar, the project will cost an estimated $800,000.
Carey hall has been vacant since 2004.
The land will be returned to a grass field.
