After months of delay, preliminary work on the ferris wheel at Modern Woodmen Park has begun.

Crews are working on site preparation for the foundation. Officials say the site needs to be compacted before the pilings are driven into the ground.

The ferris wheel isn't expected to be put up until next spring. The goal is to have it open before the 2014 baseball season.

When finished, the attraction will stand 90-feet-tall, about the same height as the clock tower on Arsenal Island (which the Corps of Engineers lists as 97 feet).
