Walkway to historical gun powder factory to be torn down

Grandin Road will be shut down just south of Little Miami River for two weeks starting Monday, March 29.

Evans Landscaping Inc. will remove the abandoned walkway structure at a cost of $125,000, said Savannah Shafer, spokeswoman for the engineer’s office.

The demolition is necessary because the concrete structure is deteriorating and poses a safety hazard, Shafer said.

The Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail will be open, but the adjacent parking lot will be part of the construction zone and off limits.

Traffic will be detoured around the construction site utilizing Kings Avenue, Columbia Road, Mason-Morrow-Millgrove Road and Ohio 48.

The Peters Cartridge Company is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, according to the National Park Service.
