WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Crews are working to demolish a century-old water tower in Warwick to make room for a roadway upgrade.

WJAR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Q9X0dt) crews began working Saturday to remove the Apponaug Mill water tower. The job is expected to continue through the day.

The tower was built in 1902 by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company.

Clearing the space will make way for the $30 million Apponaug Circulator project.

The project will eventually include five highway rotaries. Veterans Memorial Drive will be extended across the former mill site to the intersection of Centerville and Toll Gate Roads.
