Lens Pedestal Story

February 20, 2013 - "As you can see in the pictures, the concrete foundation has been completed and is ready for the installation of the steel structure.  Hopefully the weather will hold out and we can get the steel up in the next few weeks.  At which point, we will install the lantern gallery on top and hold a topping ceremony." - Jen Dearman, Director of Community and Economic Development, City of Pascagoula      Click to enlarge
