Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
The crane in the middle of the future Joseph F. Smith building goes three stories (or more) below ground. The building continues to grow around it. How will they get the crane out when they finish construction?
- Joseph F Smith building is gorgeous

A: Dear No-Name-Just-Opinion:

Obviously the building isn't going to be finished with the crane inside it. Once it is no longer needed, the crane will be disassembled (the whole thing comes apart in relatively small chunks), and either hauled directly out of the building on large flatbed trucks, or the segments will be hoisted out with another crane outside the structure and then put onto trucks.
