Plaza Implosion Date Set

The Plaza tower is scheduled to come down the Thursday before Memorial Day.

Consulting engineer Veronica Morgan says the May 24th implosion will take place between 6:30 and 7 a.m. That will result in the University and Texas intersection to be closed two hours before to two hours after the event.

Morgan says the best date was selected to match the completion of demolition, when the implosion contractor was available, and complete the first phase of new construction by August of 2013.

Morgan says maps where to park and watch will be coming soon as part of link that will come from the City of College Station.

Also to be announced is the date of a public meeting ahead of the implosion.

Morgan says surplus property salvaged from the hotel has been donated to local non-profit agencies.
