Locust Street and 21st Amendment — will be able to be reopened later

Safety scaffolding is expected to be erected on the west side of the F&M Building sometime Thursday, according to the city Building Inspector's office.

Once the scaffolding is put in place, Locust Street can be reopened, according to Chief Building Inspector Jason Dool, which he expects to happen "Friday morning at the latest."

The scaffolding is just a temporary fix, though as Granchelli Development is looking to have the missing stones from the building replaced. Once those are replaced, the scaffolding can come down. The timetable on that, however, depends on the method used. It could be months before the stone is replaced, Dool said.

Locust Street has been closed since just before midnight on June 7, when it is believed weather caused heavy stones to fall from above two of the windows on the building's third floor.

With Locust Street closed, also closed has been 21st Amendment, located in the basement of the F&M Building. It, too, can reopen once the scaffolding is in place.

  1. Is this city for real or what? Closed a complete street for 2 weeks? Who the heck is in charge here?
