SEATTLE —

A rainy June day didn't stop work on the newest additions to the giant Ferris Wheel on Seattle's waterfront.

 

Crews began installing the gondolas on Tuesday, pulling each one from a boxcar and putting it on hinges on the Seattle Great Wheel's ring beams.

 

Each gondola will be heated for cold days and air conditioned in the summer.

 

If all goes as planned, the Ferris wheel is set to open by the end of the month.
