Our recent dry weather is allowing a lot of construction projects to make good progress.

And that goes for a major project here at WTAP-TV.

Steel arrived Wednesday for the construction of WTAP's new 460-foot tower.

It will replace a shorter tower that has served as the main transmission site for WTAP for the past 50 years.

It's expected to be completely installed by October.

Then a new UHF antenna and transmitter will be installed and activated, making possible the broadcast WTAP's signal in stereo.

Then a new digital transmitter and antenna will be put in place that will be able to put out high-definition programs.
