(KSL News) Downtown construction crews are making progress on one of the boldest projects in Utah's history.

Construction crews prepare to move downtown building

The 117-year-old Odd Fellows Hall is moving across the street. Crews are busy installing steel bars underneath the 48-foot-tall, 3,000-ton building in order to lift it, turn it and move it to its new home -- which is directly across from The Market Street Grill.

Crews say they expect to lift the building off its current foundation and begin the actual move in just a few days.
