Dusty demo in Royal

Royal grain elevator complex getting demolished


December 10, 2020


A single excavator was in charge of tearing down Ag Partners' damaged elevator.

Royal's skyline is going through some big changes.

Demolition of Ag Partners' main grain elevator complex started Friday at the company's location in the north part of town. The structure suffered a massive explosion in August caused by "a grain dust incident," according to Ag Partners, and has been sitting empty awaiting demolition ever since.

The site is expected to be cleared by the end of the month. A single excavator with a multi-processor equipped with demolition jaws methodically has been tearing through concrete and steel working its way from the top down over the past week.
