Buildings destroyed by Sun Prairie explosion to be removed

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Buildings destroyed by a natural gas explosion in Wisconsin will be removed at the end of the month.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that the July 10 blast in Sun Prairie destroyed six businesses, one home and killed a volunteer firefighter. Many of the buildings damaged include apartments.

City officials met this week with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to discuss the details of an agreement to reconstruct the Main and Bristol intersection. DOT officials say reconstruction could take up to six months.

Work to rebuild the intersection could begin in September and would be expected to be finished by Dec. 1.

The City Council will consider the agreement on Tuesday.
