Crews Begin Demolition of Hamilton Dam in Downtown Flint [VIDEO]
If you have spent any time wandering around the UofM campus in downtown Flint, chances are, you have probably stopped to take a look at the Hamilton Dam. When I was going there, I would walk around there for hours between classes.
The dam is located just off Saginaw Street near the William S. White Building. Crews began the demolition of the dam today as part of the Flint Riverfront Restoration Project. It is going to cost an estimated $3.1 million to remove the 218-foot bridge. It was built in 1920 and has since deteriorated quite a bit. To me, it has always been a bit of an eyesore, so I'm happy this project is part of the overall rebuild in that area.
I really can't wait to see the finished project of that entire area. It was always nice to walk around, now it will be even better to explore.
