Burton Hall demolition begins at McNeese


Out with the old and in with the new at McNeese State University. Demolition of Burton Hall got underway this weekend.

The building is a former dorm that was evacuated during Hurricane Rita. Water intrusion and mold problems prevented the building from ever re-opening.

University officials tell 7 News a new residence hall is being built in its place. The $7.2 million project will eventually house about 150 students.
