NORMAL, Ill. (AP) - Demolition has started on a pair of old dormitories at Illinois State University.
David Gill is director of facilities planning at Illinois State in Normal. He says work has begun with the dining hall that sits between the two closed dorms.
Gill says that work will be followed by demolition of the Whitten-Hamilton and Atkin-Colby residence halls. All the work is expected to be done by May. The cost of tearing down the buildings is $3.9 million.
The dorms have been vacant for three years.
