Two large towers of power on and near the Museum Plaza site are being prepped for removal. Their wires have been snipped and new “sleek” metal-pole-towers have been strung out just in time for Mardi Gras. Crews with cranes were working on the two towers all day today removing porcelain pinecones and such, similar to the work going on at the LG&E deconstruction site on Third Street.
We’ve known this day was coming, a day foretold by the disappearing dinosaurs, but we say these towers can’t be gone soon enough. We couldn’t find any timetable, but we expect them to be gone fairly quickly. Perhaps the deconstructors could go the dramatic route and topple the thing into the empty Museum Plaza lot, but we’re a little doubtful of that.

New LG&E wireless network?
That would be something… giant electric poles wirelessly beaming electricity from place to place with no fear of ice or tree limbs. In this case, however, its just a demolition, plain and simple.
