Removal begins

Removal of the existing reflectors on Circle of Light is underway. Burton Construction (of Spokane) will remove all existing reflectors around the artwork’s 880 feet span. Once the old, damaged reflectors are removed, installation of the new reflectors can start.

This post is part of a series of updates on the Circle of Light restoration. We’re following the restoration of Richard C. “Dick” Elliott’s Circle of Light (1992) in Yakima, which had fallen into disrepair in the decades since its installation.
