SR 48 – Building Erection/Crane operation for F&M Arena (MPEC)
From now through Wednesday, January 5th, (excluding holiday restrictions), 24/7, there will be building erection and full road closure on SR 48.
The purpose of this closure is for the logistical construction of the FM Bank Arena Project. The project needs to set up a crane in the road and erect the exterior precast skin system that encloses that side of the building. The crane is sized in such a manner as to hoist the 40,000 lbs panels and place them on the building.
The crane will sit in the road itself and span curb to curb. We will have daily tractor loads of precast concrete that will be lifted off each truck and installed on the building. We will work as quickly and safely as possible to complete this work in a timely manner and reopen the roads when complete.
