On Tuesday afternoon, a helicopter helped remove 29 of the old lift towers. With the towers removed, the next steps will be surveying the site and then moving to the new tower site excavations, said Heavenly spokesperson Cole Zimmerman.

Some of those new towers along with rebar cages have already been delivered.

Demolition on the top and bottom terminals also began this week.
