U of L silo demolition plans on hold

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A plan to bring down the iconic silos along I-65 is on hold. U of L officials said it'll be at least another week before crews begin the demolition.

We were told no explosions are planned. Crews will simply cut through the thick brick walls.

Last month, the university peeled off its banners at the old six-acre industrial site.

The U of L Foundation bought the silos and the entire property for $3.3-million late last year. The school wants drivers on the interstate to be able to see the growing U of L campus.
