Cloudy with a chance of construction


Photo by Jacob Corbin The mast and boom of the red crane that supported a construction project on Clay Kaserne was dismantled June 24. For the past two years, three construction cranes, each approximately 187 feet tall, dominated the skies over Wiesbaden, serving as a point of reference for miles in any direction. Their removal is a sign of progress for the European Infrastructure Consolidation project scheduled to be complete in 2017.
