Businesses' use of helicopter downtown saved Nashville's time


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.
