Maxway work to start this week
Maxway Interior
Thanks to a camera flashbulb, the condition of the abandoned Maxway buildings interior is plainly evident. It was actually much dimmer Friday morning, with no electricity and broken light bulbs littering the floor. The earliest steps in removing asbestos will begin this week, with demolition to be completed by late September or early October. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
People walking or driving through downtown Camden may not see the old Maxway’s walls come tumbling down quite yet. What they will see this week, perhaps as early as today, is the first stages of work to remove asbestos from the site. By the end of September or early October, the long-vacant building will be gone, said Camden City Manager Mel Pearson during a visit to the site Friday morning.
