Road Updates

  • Wilmington is open East of Highland Drive
  • Highland Drive is open S of Wilmington Ave

Business Updates

  • All businesses east of Highland may remain open
  • The City’s third-party structural engineer deemed that a collapse radius still requires the closure of the following businesses: Buffalo Wild Wings, Cubby’s, and Cold Stone
  • Standard Optical and business North of Cold Stone are open
  • Elm Street businesses SLC Med Spa, SportClips, Mochinut, and Real Advantage remain closed due to glass actively falling onto the sidewalk
  • Patrons have access to The Vue underground parking garage at the SW corner at McClelland at Elm Avenue. 

Demolition Updates
