Downtown Alleyway Closed Due To Building’s Structural Deterioration



The east-west alleyway connecting Main and Washington streets is now closed to through traffic following the discovery of a bulging brick wall on the south side of the Area Reality building. According to Area Realty’s Bill Pursell, engineering studies were required on the more than 100-year-old structure. Pursell said his main focus is on getting the wall repaired, but noted that he has yet to receive a timeline from the contractor.
