Demolition causing alley closure


Ottumwa Courier

---- — OTTUMWA — The rear entrance to the downtown parking ramp in Ottumwa will have limited access the rest of the month, according to a city of Ottumwa news release.

A section of the alley behind the parking garage will be closed off because of heavy machinery that will be in place for partial building demolition at 117 and 119 E. Main St. The alleyway access to the Canteen restaurant will not be interfered with, however.

The demolition will last the rest of January, according to the release, and pedestrians and motorists are urged to be mindful of the heavy equipment and construction personnel.
