Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The view along Interstate 65 in Louisville is about to look a lot different. On Thursday, crews began demolishing the 22 concrete silos that have been a Louisville landmark for 94 years.

Smaller structures surrounding the silos were demolished earlier in the week.

The University of Louisville purchased the structures and the 15-acre property they sit on from Solae Co., a DuPond subsidiary, last December for $3.3 million.
