After months of demolition, only piles of rubble and the base concrete floor of an abandoned industrial factory near Blue Valley Middle School in south Overland Park remains.

Efforts to raze and clean up the Kuhlman Diecast plant near 164th Street and Mission Road began in June when the Johnson County Commission approved the use of $725,000 from general fund reserves for the project.
