ELYRIA — The BP gas station at 402 E. Bridge St. is open.

The station temporarily closed due to structural issues late last week after the owners became concerned with the canopy.

Kevin Brubaker, a supervisor in the city’s Building Department, said the city did not close the station, but the owners chose to close and barricade the station as a precaution.

During the closure, the owners secured the posts and removed water from the canopy, Brubaker said Saturday.

“It is open for business and when the weather (improves), the owners will either replace the posts or the canopy, but there is no imminent danger,” he said.

Brubaker was notified Feb. 19 by police that one of the station’s canopy’s main supports was bowing.

    I don’t depend on this BP being open or closed.
    For the past number of years, it has consistently posted some of the highest prices in the State.
