ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) - Commuters along Interstate 270 in West St. Louis County may notice a landmark missing from the sky.

The iconic West County Center Dove celebrated its “Sweet 16” last month, marking 16 years since it was last refurbished before the mall’s re-grand opening in 2002.

Now, it's time for the Dove to get another makeover.

According to a news release, Warren Signs will be replacing the sign's white poly faces, replacing the existing metal halide lights with new color changing LEDs, and painting and reinforcing the pole the Dove sits upon.

The project is expected to take two to three weeks, so don't worry - the Dove will be back in place before the week of Thanksgiving.
