WATCH: Old Owego Apalachin Building Demolished
The flood-damaged Owego Apalachin School District administration building has been torn down.
Demolition crews took down the abandoned structure at 36 Talcott Street in the Village of Owego on Thursday.
School district public information coordinator Stephen Jensen said the work began shortly before 8 a.m. and was completed around 3 p.m.
Jensen said the building had been used as a school until the mid-1960s. It later was used to house the school district's administrative offices until it sustained extensive damage in the September 2011 flood.
District operations were housed in temporary offices until several months ago when construction on a 15,118 square foot building was completed. The new $7.3 million structure is located on the district's campus in the village of Owego.
The district is working to complete its recovery efforts following the flood. The new Owego Elementary School opened just over a year ago. Construction is continuing on a maintenance and storage facility on the Owego campus. That building is expected to be operational in the spring or summer.
