A 45-day work stoppage at the Las Vegas site of the SkyVue observation wheel has ended, now that funding for the project has been secured. Various parts of the wheel are expected to start arriving in May, including two 12-foot, 26,400-pound bearings. The steel wheel will sport a 350-ton main wheel axle, and 50,000-square-foot LED screens will be supported by the wheel's steel components.
