Building demolition

Employees from Alliance Steel of Superior, Wis., tear down buildings in the 2100 block at Fort McCoy. The buildings were demolished to make way for the Container Loading Facility, a fiscal year 2012 Military Construction, Army Reserve project. Building 2105, which houses the RIA Federal Credit Union, will remain in place until the credit union is relocated to building 1501, scheduled for later this year.
