Demolition continues on dozens of blighted structures in Clarksburg


Contractors and the City of Clarksburg continue its dozens of demolition projects going on all over town.

City manager Martin Howe says Empire Builders is working on tearing down around 25 structures and Cira Consulting is in the process of abating around 30 structures.

“To really get these out of there at a quick pace is really our goal,” Howe said. “This is our second round for two years now, so this will make a great impact on those communities once it’s completed.”

Howe says after the abatement process is completed, public works officials will begin razing those structures as well.
