Monument topping delayed again

Lady Victory’s return to the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis was postponed again Wednesday morning due to windy conditions. Strong winds also forced contractors to postpone moving the 118-year-old sculpture on Tuesday. Crews will decide on a day-to-day basis if it is safe to use a crane to lift the bronze statue more than 200 feet to the top of the monument. The sculpture was taken down nearly five months ago for a $1.5 million restoration.
