Old Jeep plant coming down

Crews continue the job of tearing down the old Jeep plant. Only eight of the 60 buildings of DaimlerChrysler's Jeep Parkway plant will be razed, but those eight include nearly a third of the 6 million square feet of building space.

The decision to demolish part of the Jeep Parkway plant occurred after the company last year opened its $750 million North Toledo assembly plant on Stickney Avenue.

A 16,500-pound wrecking ball began the process in the fall.
