EL PASO - The ongoing demolition of two nearly 50-year-old dorms at the University of Texas at El Paso is a building block toward reaching Tier One research status, university leaders said.

Burges and Barry halls, both of which once served as student dormitories, will be replaced with a $70 million, 250,000-sf interdisciplinary research building.

Contractors are removing materials from the inside of Barry Hall while Burges Hall is being razed.

The demolition is expected to be completed in September 2015.
