William Eckhardt Research Center - Tower Crane Erection

Please be aware a tower crane will be erected at the William Eckhardt Research Center site from April 2 through April 5 to facilitate the start of construction of basement levels.

The campus community can expect the following as the tower crane is installed:

--All work and erection will be contained within the project fence line.

--Trucks moving equipment on-site will be staged off campus.

--At times from April 2 through April 5, traffic control flaggers may briefly pause traffic along Ellis Avenue as a safety precaution.

--The electrically-powered tower crane will reduce the use of diesel equipment operated on site.
