Description: A touching memorial to 3 ironworkers who lost their lives in the renovation of the McClugage in 2000.

Just off Grandview drive and a short distance away from McClugage bridge sits this memorial to 3 ironworkers who lost their life to an unfortunate accident.

If you want to check out the memorial for yourself, you have to park over by Grandview Drive Park and walk the short distance. There is a nearby bench that you can sit on to view the memorial with the bridge in the background.

Overall, a really nice tribute to the three who lost their lives. If you happen to find yourself nearby, stop by and pay your respects.
