The seeing isn't great on LabCam at the moment, but it looks like launch tower segment #5 is getting dressed to roll out soon (note scaffold assemblies installed at the top).

I'm guessing that's what tomorrows road closure is all about (although I'm still wondering when they're going to move GSE#3 - it's been seemingly ready for weeks now).

The LR 11350 is a seriously big crane, and it's ready for some launch tower lifting. @NASASpaceflight

As a new Launch Tower section waits to be stacked at the Orbital Site, the Liebherr LR 11350's boom is raised in preparation. Meanwhile, the GSE 5 tank's Aft Dome was spotted at the Production Site.
