WOW! The Crane is Up!

The 250 ton crane with its 300 foot boom arrived on schedule early this morning. It was an incredible sight as they put section by section together down Lawson Ct. Then the concrete pulverizer arrived and was readied. At about 1 p.m. they "boomed up" raising the boom and positioning it over the Smokestack. It was truly impressive and done quickly and safely by EBI and Bigge Crane with many spectators staring in awe.

Ann Notarangelo from Channel 5 News was on hand to watch and spoke to several residents for a story that aired Monday night on their 6 p.m. newscast. Click this link for the story from CBS5.

Yesterday I went and walked around the "hallowed ground". Took some pictures. Just looked up and appreciated all the hours it took to build such a tower. Bring 'er down gently!

Absolutely, Tom. We have every intention of doing the job safely and with the respect it deserves.
