Title: Northville Psychiatric Hospital reduced to dust.

She gone! I wonder if any of the tunnels are still there?

In one crashing cascade of concrete, the former eight-story state psychiatric hospital in Northville Township went from nothing but trouble to nothing but rubble on Friday, Nov. 30.

Closed in 2003 by then-governor John Engler, the former mental-health facility was a magnet for thrill seekers and ghost hunters until earlier this year when Adamo Group, the company hired to demolish the towering structure, erected fences around the property's perimeter and brought in security guards to ward off trespassers.

Securing the property prior to Adamo's presence added a strain to the Northville Township Public Safety Department.

The building proved to be a quiet menace to township taxpayers until its final days as unforeseen issues with hidden asbestos extended the demolition process by two months and pushed the cost of bringing it down from an initial estimate of $5.8 million to between $8.7 to $9 million.

"Obviously, we're relieved it's finally down," said Northville Township Supervisor Robert Nix. "The rubble will be cleared as long as the weather allows and the project will be officially finished in the spring.

"We're excited that we were able to fulfill our commitment to take down the eyesore and now we're looking forward to the future of the site."
