Riverside Update

June 26, 2023

The demolition process of the former Riverside Hospital site has resumed. After some contractor changes and progress being halted, the Circuit Court Receiver has taken control of virtually every aspect of the property.

Over the last few weeks the first of the underground storage tanks (UST) has been properly filled and compacted, the second UST has been located and work has begun on that tank. Thousands of gallons of contaminated water have been pumped from the basement and shipped to a licensed facility, some basic cleanup of the site has been done and the new demolition contractors equipment has begun to mobilize on site.

Your Trenton City Council approved the contract through the Receiver to finish the demolition a few weeks ago, and the Court Receiver today notified us that the necessary contracts have been executed and the final demolition permit is expected to be submitted to Trenton, processed and issued to the contractor in short order.

Trenton Mayor Steven Rzeppa said early Monday “This wouldn’t be a Riverside project if there weren’t delays, but thanks to the diligence of our administration and legal team coupled with funding from Wayne County we are back on track and seeing significant progress in the demolition once again. Our residents have deserved far better from that site for far too long, and this agreement puts us on track to have a clean site there this year.”

In the coming days on the site we expect increased activity as the Contractor begins work on the site ranging from standard pre demo work, cleanup and any other abatement that may still be needed. It is anticipated this phase will take around 3 weeks with actual structure removal to commence after that.

We will update this bulletin as more progress is made and as each phase gets underway on our website and on Facebook.
