The wooden barricades are back up in front of the Keg Creek Boot and Saddle Shop on the south side of Glenwood Town Square.

Building owner Eddie Lund said the barricades will remain in place until brick facing on the front of the building is peeled off and replaced. A beam running behind the facade will be inspected before the bricks are replaced.

In July, structural problems were discovered in the Keg Creek building at 411 Sharp St. and an adjoining structure at 413 Sharp St.

The problems were detected when two I-beams fell from the ceiling into the Keg Creek building.The buildings were barricaded off from July until late October while repairs were being made.

The barricades were initially removed last month after consultation with structural engineers.

Lund said no timeline has been established for repairs to be completed on the facade.
