King Street Station – Raising steel in the snow

 

Yesterday at King Street Station massive steel beams were delivered in snowy conditions. Crews, with the aid of a huge crane, began laying out the steel structure, and the first beams were lifted and welded into place.

This marks the start of a dramatic milestone for the restoration of the historic station. As these beams are erected in the days ahead the skeleton of the station’s new Jackson Street Plaza will take shape. The steel being laid out weighs more than 1/4 million tons. Check out these wintery shots.
