Tower work on the river

Driving around downtown and I spot a giant crane near River Drive Mall. Well, I HAD to go see what was up. There was some work on a tower near the public parking lot. Was the tower there before?? Why don’t I remember it? You could see a speck of a guy way up high working away on something or other. What a view he must have had! I’m jealous.

Apparently it must have been something city related because at the end of Santa Maria road was a Public Access guy videotaping. I should have called the PAC office and asked.

What were they doing?? Leaves a passerby wondering…

  1. They have been working on that tower ever since the years I lived in the RGP Hotel, in fact I’ve witnessed that entire bridge access area come alive from construction.

      After I hit publish, I realized “Duh, that was the KLDO tower when they were there.” The question still remains, who uses it and why do they still have to work on it? I bet you had a great view from the RGP!

    KLDO used to be located in Riverdrive Mall. That was the station’s former transmission tower. Likely at one time there were other users renting space on the tower. Take a close look at the roof of the Holiday Inn and you’ll see lots of antennas up there.
