It is the season for it, but particularly with the most recent storm and freezing condition, we’ve had quite a bit of ice falling from the tower. Today it’s plagued the northwest facing exposure of the triangle. We’ve put up signs and caution tape at the columns and locations where it has been most problematic.
HOWEVER, due to the wind, PLEASE USE ABUNDANT CAUTION coming and going from anywhere around the perimeter of the the building, including the mall entrances and exits, the Circle Driveway, Plaza and the sidewalk along Sheridan. We’ve even closed the plaza entrance to the mall, to discourage traffic along this location. Sheets of ice can take flight like a frisbee or boomerang and land just about anywhere at the base of the building.
If you expect guests, we strongly suggest you warn them as well, and ask that for their safety they be extra cautious coming and going.
Obviously, it is safe to assume we will experience more of this weather throughout the season. So always be aware, especially during and after precipitation which is followed by freezing conditions.
