One of the most popular signs in the world is to be repaired and made even more eye-catching. The sign is currently being made brighter and whiter.
A platform will be used to give the sign a facelift. Cleaners and workers are washing and repainting the letters which are 50ft of height.
There is a special occasion for this beautification: the sign located on Mount Lee, Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles will be celebrating its 90th birthday. The project is envisaged to take up to 2 months and a half. Workers will use more than 400 gallons of white paint to restore the brightness of the iconic sign.
Hollywood will have a clean and repaired landmark in less than 10 weeks. The project for a facelift is aiming at making the sign all white eliminating all dirt, discolourations and the marks of time.
