For Advanced Explosives Demolition company, taking down buildings like Keystone Towers is a family business.
"Can you see the manlifts right there with all the orange all up in it?," said six-year-old Elyia Kelly. "That's my dad."
"Well, I have been doing it since I was four days old, so about six years," Elyia Kelly said.
Elyia spent Tuesday helping her mother Lisa Kelly brief members of the media about the upcoming implosion. Meanwhile, the rest of the AED crew spent the day preparing between 2,000 and 4,000 holes for drilling and dynamite placement.
"They're marking all the beams," Elyia Kelly said. "They're marking the beams with spray paint."
"We have a crew in there that is getting the steel prepped," Lisa Kelly said. "We have a crew in there that's also getting the concrete ready."
There will be a public viewing area for the implosion set up in the parking lot of Clay's Enterprise Auto Service located at the corner of 46th and Allsionaville Rd.
Lisa Kelly said they won't know exactly how much dynamite will be needed for the implosion until Friday, but she says it's guaranteed to be worth watching, even if you saw the RCA dome implosion in 2008, or the implosion at Market Square Arena in 2001.
"You're not going to feel or see the same thing no matter how many you see in a lifetime," Lisa Kelly said.
Elyia said at least one thing is certain.
"If you're at least 40-meters away from the building, you're alright," Elyia Kelly said. "You'll just see the building come down."
As for Elyia, she said she already feels lucky to be the only kid allowed inside that blast zone. She said it certainly won't be the last either.
"I think she'll probably be the first female blaster that's hit the AED industry for us," Lisa Kelly said.
"If my mom is alive when I'm doing this she'll be one of my workers," Elyia Kelly said. "My dad will be one of my workers. She'll probably be a volunteer."
There are going to be some traffic restrictions for a short time Sunday morning around 45th Street and Binford Boulevard preceeding the implosion. Beginning at 7 a.m., Binford Boulevard will be closed between 46th Street and Keystone Avenue. At 7:50 a.m., 46th Street will be closed between Keystone Ave. and Binford Blvd. and Keystone Ave. will be closed between 46th Street and Binford Blvd.
All streets are expected to reopen about 30 minutes after the implosion.
A public viewing area will be available in the parking lot of the Town and Country Shopping Center between Allisonville Rd. and Keystone Ave.
For most of us, the best way to view the implosion will be on TV, and Fox59 will bring footage of the implosion at 8 a.m. on-air.
