ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Asheville is going for the bronze ring. A 4-ton bronze ring, to be exact.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that traffic on several city streets will be blocked or dramatically slowed Thursday morning when a bronze ring that’s part of a fountain will be
transported from west Asheville to Pack Square in the downtown area.

The ring is part of a fountain being installed in the square.

Pack Square Conservancy says the ring will be loaded beginning about 6 a.m., a process that will take about an hour. It should arrive at Pack Square about 9 a.m.

The ring is about 20 feet wide, which is wider than one travel lane on a typical street. That means traffic in both directions is likely to be affected.
