Bristol’s Trudon Property Continues To Remain An Eyesore

BRISTOL – Back in 2003 the City of Bristol purchased the former Trudon & Platt Trucking property on Downs Street.  In the late 90′s and early 2000′s it was a big issue for the city, they publicly and aggressively pushed to have the blighted property cleaned up. Local print media outlets were all over it as well.  The city has owned the property for almost a decade now and the building continues to fall into disrepair and is still an eyesore.

Back in 2008 Mayor Art Ward said “The time has come to make a decision about what to do with the decrepit former trucking terminal near the eastern end of Memorial Boulevard”.

More than an eyesore the building on the property is not safe. The roof is starting to collapse and the elements are taking a toll on the property.

The City does not have any “No Trespassing” signs posted and the gate is unlocked. It is quite clear that people are going to the property and vandalizing it.

Next to the City owned Trudon property is the well maintained Downs Street Cemetery manged by The West Cemetery Assn.

    That would be a great spot for Memorial BLVD parking which is well needed!

  5. I moved out of Bristol in 2001. I can’t believe that is still there.
