There was a time when people couldn’t look at their car dashboard, the back of their wrist, or their cell phone screen to see what time it was. Community leaders put clock towers or some type of time piece in a prominent location. Employers put clocks up to remind employees to be to work on time. Some of these timepieces are new but they are based on a long standing tradition.

The construction that you see in the pictures is part of the 2 year project that will keep Goodyear headquarters in Akron. When finished the old Plant 3 will be the new central offices, called the “Innovation Center” and will be connected to the current offices on Market.
