Crews begin demolition of Austin power plant building Tuesday

AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) -

It's the beginning of the end for an Austin landmark. 

Demolition of the main power plant building and turbine room kicks off Tuesday morning at the old Austin Municipal Plant.

Other buildings on the property have already been demolished since work began in January. These iconic structures are the last ones remaining.

In 2016, the city decided to demolish the facility to make way for a new recreation center set to be ready by next year.  

A private ceremony to commemorate the milestone begins at 9 a.m. The entire demolition process should wrap up by the end of June.
