Crews have almost finished installing the last of the steel roof supports on the WR2 roof dome, and, on Tuesday, Nov. 18 from about 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the roof will be poured using 331 cubic yards of concrete. During this time, approximately 30 trucks will be accessing the site to deliver the concrete. A flagger may be used at times to help direct traffic as the trucks move in and out of the site, but delays should be kept to a minimum.
