Posted on December 19, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Workers erected one of the last beams supporting a walkway leading from the second floors of Victorian Square to the Lexington Center, July 17, 1993. Parts of Main and Vine streets were closed during the overnight hours as the 96-foot, 43,000-pound beam was put in position. The pedway opened later in the fall, giving pedestrians the ability to to walk through a complete circuit of enclosed passageways linking the Radisson Plaza Hotel, the Market Place, Victorian Square and the Lexington Center.
