Dover Strip Mall Temporarily Closed


DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - A Dover strip mall has been temporarily closed.

Dover code enforcement noticed asbestos at the Capitol Shopping Center on US 13.

The shopping center will stay closed until the asbestos abatement is complete.

"They stopped using asbestos in construction materials 30 years," said Ann Marie Townshend, planning director for the city. "We're at the point that this is older than that."

Long-term exposure to asbestos can lead to serious health problems - like lung cancer or asbestosis.
