Downtown Building Implosion Set for Saturday
DAYTON -- Dynamite is about to take down a building right in the heart of Dayton this weekend.
On Saturday, contractors will demolish the 12-story Schwind building on South Ludlow Street.
We're told the demolition is expected to happen at 7:15 a.m.
Scott Wells, Senior Project Manager for Steve Rauch Inc., says there will be a countdown at 7:05 with a 10-minute siren.
Wells said his crews have spent the last two weeks preparing for the implosion.
"At zero, you'll hear a series of shots followed by a loud rumble, followed by a dust plume," said Wells.
A four-block radius will be blocked off to keep people away from that dust.
Dayton police, the bomb squad, fire departments and city officials will work with contractors to secure a safe perimeter.
The following streets and sidewalks will be closed that day:
Ludlow Street between Second Street and Fifth Street.
West Third St. and West Fourth St. between Main St. and Wilkinson St.
Most of the streets are to close at 6 a.m. on Saturday and reopen by 9 a.m.
But the city says Ludlow Street, between Third and Fourth Streets is expected to remain closed.
The last implosion in downtown Dayton was in 1999 when the old Rikes building was torn down.
We're told there won't be a spot for the public to watch the demolition.
"Exposure with that amount of dust isn't good, that's why we sent out notifications to ask people to avoid the dust and stay inside," said Wells.
Environment control specialists will be on site to monitor dust levels.
The city also says downtown businesses and residents are asked shut off their air intakes until the dust settles, close windows and doors for at least an hour after the implosion and cover outside electrical devices such as card readers, satellite dishes, etc.
The historic 1908 building at the corner of Ludlow and Fourth will not be demolished.
