They have to be getting close to attaching the crane now.

It's either the tower crane base or they're looking to communicate with extraterrestrial life.

Great day to be a crane lover in GR. Over on Michigan Street too...

What's really fascinating is the operator cannot see the crane base. They must have a camera mounted on the crane? If you get a chance, skip out of work and watch this person.

I’m glad I know that’s the beginning of a crane.  I’d otherwise be concerned we were about to get the worlds tackiest weather ball, or perhaps one of GR’s favorite families had developed a phallacy complex.

You kidding? I'd love the weatherball in downtown again or a large spire on a building.

Same, but not on this building.

I noticed this noon there are panels missing at the top on the east side.  I check out Erickson's yard on 3 Mile every so often and it's getting emptier. :)

Good news everyone for the time being. The Pearl Street Bridge has reopened! Westbound side however is down to one lane. Either construction crews finished up whatever they had to do with the hotel or they reopened it because of the I-196 westbound freeway closure.
