Photo: Making way for parking garage

Posted: Thursday, December 11, 2008

Employees of Southeast Earthmovers remove multiple big rubber mats used to contain rock fragments Wednesday during blasting downtown. The work is being done to prepare the site at Telephone Hill for a parking garage and transit center. The company is using a whistle system to alert the public when it will blast. One long whistle means preparing to blast, two long whistles mean ready to blast and three short whistles mean "all clear."
