Final step ahead in KD Station demolition


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- There's nothing left on the property of the former KD Station in Sioux City, but there's still a little bit of work to do before demolition is considered finished.

The city says, clean-up crews need to remove petroleum on the north side of the property. Officials hope to have that finished by October, and then it'll be ready for redevelopment.

Demolition crews have had to remove asbestos and hazardous waste from the land housing the former meat-packing plant. Despite the complexity of the building, the city says it was a relatively easy process... and one that was a long time coming.

Michelle Brady, Sioux City Community Development says, "When you've been working on something for several years and it's a slow process, when you actually see the work get done and now you see nothing on the site, that's kind of exciting."

The city's about to make the final payment to the firm responsible for the demolition. The whole project cost just above $4 million, about $3 million under budget.
