Big Blue Kansas Statehouse Crane Coming Down

KSAL StaffDecember 11, 2013

A giant blue crane that has been a big part of the renovation of the Kansas Statehouse for more than three years is coming down.

Project Manager Jim Rinner says general contractor JE Dunn Construction expects the crane to be dismantled by the end of the week.

Workers are using an equally large red crane to take down the blue crane.

The towering blue crane was used to carry building materials to the Capitol roof and dome, including massive steel beams used to support scaffolding. The steel beams have been removed, and the scaffolding is coming down.

The $330 million renovation project began in 2001. State officials are planning a ceremony marking its completion to coincide with the Jan. 29 anniversary of Kansas statehood.
