Crane Day a Success

On Saturday night the crew from Marr took down the large, steel beams that supported the scaffolding levels. Working from about 7pm until 2am, the crew pulled down groups of small beams as well as four 24ft beams and four 60ft beams. The large, 60ft beams weighed a hefty 6,000lbs each and were taken away on an extended trailer. Once they left the site it signaled the end of the most nerve-racking portion of the project. The four piers or legs will be coming down over night this week and everything will be cleaned up by Thursday morning.
