PUT-in-BAY

Visitors may have to wait for the view atop Perry's Victory Monument.

The observation deck on the monument column will close this weekend for the rest of the summer, said Superintendent Andy Ferguson. Saturday is the last day visitors can take the elevator to the 317-foot deck and observe Lake Erie and surrounding islands.

The monument is closed for investigation, assessment and temporary repairs, which began Monday. The entire process will last 17 weeks.
