The ‘lattice tower’ on the Museum Plaza site is starting to come down piece by piece as workers maneuver across thin metal beams with torches in hand. Work started on Monday, but the last couple days were slow with no major evidence of deconstruction. Today, though, torches were fired anew and large chunks were being lowered to the ground by two large cranes that arrived in late February. It seems to us that despite being anchored by steel cable to the lattice tower, those workers up there are in a precarious position when a gust of wind decides to breeze down the Ohio River.
The views must be great from up there, though. We’ve been taking progress shots this week of the tower being deconstructed, and you can follow along in chronological order after the click.
