Several blocks downtown were closed Saturday morning due to the installation of new cooling towers for The Bank of America building that required the use of a helicopter.
Roads were blocked from 3rd to 6th Avenue and from Charlotte Avenue to Union Street from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m.
Due to the height of the building, a project manager informed Nashville's News 2 that it would have cost more money and time without the helicopter.
A crane would have required road closures for a period of weeks verses the few hours the helicopter required for installation.
The helicopter crew staged their operations and fueling station in a large parking lot on Cowan Street.
The helicopter made 12 lifts total to get all of the equipment off and on the building.
The operation was successful due to a joint effort of the Proctor and Graves Service Company, Anderson Piping, and Rome Eddleman and Associates.
