CLARKSBURG, W.Va.- Construction is currently taking place on a new project that will bring a big change to downtown Clarksburg.
The old Chase Bank building on West Main Street that is being demolished and will soon become a U.S Postal Service building. While the city cannot use the post office for tax revenue, Clarksburg Mayor Ryan Kennedy said that it will bring plenty of new business to the area.
“The fact that it’s a brand new building in downtown Clarksburg is going to draw people to this area because obviously people are going to need to use the post office, and so I think it will be a benefit to the downtown area just having it here,” said Kennedy.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
