If you didn’t notice, you might have heard it today.

Work crews spent much of the day working to drive pillars into the ground at 6th St. and Front St. in Boise Wednesday. The loud, rhythmic clanging noise echoed throughout downtown from the future site of The Vanguard.

The noise won’t last too long though, according to a worker on site. He told BoiseDev the project would put down eleven pillars, with each one taking about twenty minutes to complete. It should wrap up before the end of the day.
