 Detroit's Little Caesars Arena has topping out ceremony

The District Detroit passed a major milestone in the construction of the Little Caesars Arena: The last remaining piece of structural steel needed to finish the roof was officially placed on August 4.

The men and women involved on the project celebrated the milestone with a commemorative topping out ceremony, signing their names and decorating the steel with banners, flags, and an evergreen tree before hoisting it into place.
