Silo demolition update

silos-aug.-12,-2014-b

The silos are not going down easily on the recently-acquired University of Louisville acreage. As of Wednesday, a total of nine of the 22 behemoths had crumbled beneath the jaws of the demolition equipment. There were two rows of them so progress is difficult to ascertain for I-65 drivers passing by the demolition site. It’s a slow methodical process with deconstruction crews using equipment that crushes the side of each silo piece by piece. The deadline for completion of the project is October 30.

  1. I think it would make a good target for Uncle Sam to use as target practice for a cruise missile or a laser guided bomb. Would go much more quickly.

  2. I am beginning to think on that TV show, The Earth After People, these silos would have been the last evidence of mankind nature obliterated.
