UPDATE: Waverly Mayor Greg Kempton released a statement late Thursday afternoon of a change to the announced detour by the Ohio Department of Transportation (in our report below). Now, traffic will be maintained in a limited capacity on US 23 instead of a detour.

The historic Greenbaum Building will be demolished Saturday in Waverly, Ohio. Dan Ramey/Litter Media.

The village of Waverly is planning a one day full-closure of U.S. 23 at the intersection of S.R. 220 (Market Street) for a building demolition on Saturday, December 4 from 7 AM – 3 PM. 

U.S. 23 Southbound Detour – Traffic will be detoured via Clough Street, North Street, S.R. 220, and Ford Avenue.

U.S. 23 Northbound Detour – Traffic will be detoured via Lock Street, Second Street, and Clough Street.

Following demolition of the structure, U.S. 23 will reopen to traffic. Once all debris and equipment have been removed, S.R. 220 will also reopen.
