COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Demolition has begun of a central Ohio veterans memorial ahead of the creation of a statewide veterans memorial on the site.

Plans for the Ohio Veterans Memorial and Museum include a high-tech, glass-walled museum and a memorial grove.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1xXhXkD ) that demolition crews began the first stages of demolition of the Franklin County Veterans Memorial on Tuesday.

After the demolition, which is expected to cost just under $900,000 and be finished by March 31, the county will turn the site over to the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation.

The corporation is overseeing the new $55 million memorial and museum.

Other elements of the new memorial include a promenade that will wrap around the building and rise to a rooftop sanctuary.
