It was early last fall that Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima announced the opening of Woodman’s Market in Waukesha in 2013. The location for the new Woodman’s Markets will be on the corner of Highway 164 and East Main Street where Waukesha Spancrete formerly operated.
To make way for this addition to the many Waukesha grocery stores, Spancrete is coming down in segments as construction crews have systematically demolished the large structure over the course of the past couple of weeks. All that remains of what used to be the Waukesha Spancrete are huge piles of pulverized concrete.
Born and raised in Waukesha, I seem to remember Spancrete always being at the Main Street location, and I have been unable to determine the actual year or date that the Waukesha plant opened. Driving by Spancrete on many occasions the plant seemed somewhat large, but it wasn’t until the demolition began that I realized the enormity of the structure as I took photographs of the demolition process. Below I have posted images of the demolition process and I hope to include a couple more as demolition reaches the end, perhaps later this week?
