BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO)-- As the sun was coming up in Bowling Green Monday morning, so was the first steel beam for what will eventually become a state-of-the-art paint shop at the Corvette plant.
"It's a super exciting day because today marks the event, we're putting in the first piece of steel. There will be about 11,000 pieces all together, about 4,200 tons of steel over the course of about the next 6 months," said Plant Manager, Kai Spande.
Construction say the beams are each about 55 feet tall, and weigh over 6,000 pounds. They were hoping to have around 55 up by the end of Monday.
