ALTON - Demolition of the old Lenhardt Tool and Die facility appears to be coming soon, but it is weather-dependent.

Greg Caffey, Alton Planning and Zoning Director, said workers were out doing “contractor mobilization” at the facility late this week, despite cold temperatures.

“It is weather-dependent, but they could be in full force next week,” he said. “They have been doing the prep work for the demolition.”

Caffey said the area is in a prominent Alton location and should be “attractive” for redevelopment opportunities once the demolition and land cleanup is finished.
