TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A new communications tower is beginning to take shape in Vigo County.
The first section of what will be a 300-foot tower is now standing just west of the Vigo County Jail.
The tower is being paid for with county 911 funds as well as a federal grant given to some of the county's township fire departments.
When completed it will be part of the Hoosier Safe-T network, connecting Vigo County with communities around the state in times of emergencies.
It will also hold other radio equipment for the county that had been placed at other locations.
