Building demolished to add parking

ROSWELL — The intersection of Second and Main streets in downtown Roswell will be closed between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 11 while the two-story building on the southwest corner is demolished.

Roswell police will divert traffic around the intersection during demolition of the building that formerly housed a gift shop. In addition, the state Highway Department will post message boards and signs directing motorists around the demolition area.

The building is being leveled to make room for additional parking for the International UFO Museum & Research Center, said Jack Swickard, president of the Museum’s board of directors.
