Adrian abandoned gas station to be torn down

ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

The City of Adrian is trying to figure out what to do about the cleanup of an abandoned gas station.

The gas station at North Main and Front streets is in bad shape and has been for years.  There are cracked and shattered glass windows, overgrown weeds and the soil beneath it all is contaminated. 

Officials with The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality say residents can expect to see crews tear the gas station down in late August or early September.  It will take a few weeks because underground storage tanks have to be removed and the contaminated soil has to be dug out. 

Once all of that is done, the commercial property will go up for sale. Residents and business owners in the area are very excited. 

"We have a beautiful downtown, so the opportunity to bring in more business is phenomenal," said David Horstman, owner of Sauce Italian Grill and Pub.

We will continue to follow this story and the redevelopment in downtown Adrian.
