The demolition of a 102-year Victorian house in Radnor for a parking lot was halted Thursday after asbestos was discovered inside.
The three-story, neglected house at 111 Runnymede Ave. was purchased by Radnor Township for $182,700 last year despite protests from nearby residents. Last week the commissioners awarded a bid of $12,740 for the demolition and cleanup.
Asbestos was found in insulation around pipes in a routine inspection and was removed Thursday and Friday. The structure is scheduled to be demolished tomorrow.
