Demolition of former Triumph Building about to begin with some disruptions to parking, traffic

The former Triumph Building is about to come down, with demolition scheduled to start Monday, Aug. 16. Demolition could take a month or more.

Downtown businesses will remain open and accessible during demolition and construction, according to Village Manager Jim Marino, but some temporary street closures might disrupt traffic occasionally during the project.

Among the top concerns for downtown business owners is the loss of parking spaces, Marino said. Parking along the building on the south side of Ridge Road and the west side of Martin Avenue will be unavailable during the project.
