Part of a Kentucky State University landmark was missing Wednesday. 

Construction workers blocked off the area around the university's smokestack. The top bricks that were painted with green and gold to form a "K" were gone. 

The smokestack, which is behind the Jordan Building, has been a part of the university skyline for many years.
