Building 25 set to come down


NAUGATUCK — The Public Works Department announced that demolition of Building 25 is scheduled for Monday.

The building at 58 Maple St. used to be a hub of the former U.S. Rubber Co. and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The borough received approval from Historic Preservation Officer Daniel Forrest in the summer to demolish the building.

The work is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. but actually demolition of the building isn’t expected to start until 10 a.m. The schedule could change depending on the weather or other unforeseen conditions, according to the department.

Pedestrians in the area are asked to keep at a safe distance. The demolition is not expected to impact traffic in the area, according to the department.
