Central Michigan building reopening after asbestos work

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) – Central Michigan University’s main administration building is reopening after being shut down since last month due to elevated asbestos levels.

The Mount Pleasant school says Warriner Hall is back open Thursday and employees are allowed to return to their offices.

The building was closed in late May. Elevated asbestos levels were based on air samples after crews working on water lines noticed insulation and old pipes in a large air duct in the building’s crawl space. Officials say more recent air-quality tests have come back OK.

The school says Plachta Auditorium will remain cordoned off as asbestos abatement crews continue work.

Employees had been reassigned temporarily to work at other campus locations or from home. The insulation and pipes likely came from pre-1975 work.
