Demolition begins on former Asphalt Solutions

Demolition begins at Asphalt Solutions in Youngstown, Ohio

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – It has been four months since fire destroyed a business on the lower end of Market Street in Youngstown.

On Friday, crews started demolishing what was left of the old Asphalt Solutions building. Although flames tore through the structure on March 19, it could not be torn down until after the Ohio EPA had a chance to go through the ruins to see what, if any, contaminants were still there.

The contractor turned in a revised notice to the EPA on Thursday, which allowed the demolition to proceed, according to Abby Beniston, who handles code enforcement and demolition for Youngstown.

Owners of the business already have opened up shop in a new location at the former B & R Wholesale Tire on the city’s west side.
