PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — If you saw a helicopter downtown around PPG Place on Saturday morning and were wondering what was going on, it was an operation to lift Duquesne Light transformers to top of one of the PPG Place buildings.
Crews were removing one transformer and installing three new transformers atop the roof.
According to Pittsburgh Public Safety spokesman Chris Togneri, all went well.
