ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A St. Louis Landmark is about to go away, temporarily.
We're talking about that giant Budweiser sign that sits on top of a building at Anheuser Busch.
Starting Monday, weather permitting, workers will begin removing the sign letter by letter. And it's a pretty big job. According to the company's website, the "B" is 18 feet tall and weighs 2400 lbs. The remaining letters are 15 feet tall and weigh anywhere from 450-1600 lbs. depending on the letter.
The entire project is expected to take five weeks.
The Budweiser sign has been on the building since 1979. It will be replaced with a newer, brighter sign that uses LED technology.
