MANSFIELD, OH- On Wednesday, November 14th a wall caved in at 51 East 4th Street, causing what appeared to be extensive damage. The Adena Corporation, the Construction Manager on the lot, has since released a statement saying that nobody was harmed and the construction schedule has not been impacted.

The statement in full is below:

"Crews were working on installing a retaining wall for the project. The particular section of this wall was located near the foundation of an existing building over 100 years old. As per procedure, the excavation was evaluated based visual inspections and on previous deep excavations on the project. The excavation took place and held for a period of time. At some point the structure of the existing wall gave way and slid into the excavation. The area was identified as an area to be aware of and no workers were in the area at the time of the failure.

The building that was damaged was not part of the historic restaurant and was just being used for storage. There was no end use set for the building other than storage at this time. The area will be cleaned up and will not impact the schedule or work at the restaurant.

Adena Corporation is acting as the Construction Manager on this project.

Randy A. Payne
