There is something fascinating about people working with heavy equipment.
Changes, improvements, transformations.
The addition to our city LIBRARY is almost finished. Soon there will be room for more books, more computers and a big place for story time. I walk by the library often and enjoy watching the process of building.
On campus a NEW AUDITORIUM is almost finished. It is HUGE. Construction started in 2007. For the first year all that happened was the hauling of mega tons of dirt and rocks to create a big hole. Here you can see the concrete walls ascending around the area that will seat 15,000 people. On the other side of the building will be a multi use area the size of ten basketball courts.
That’s a lot of bricks to put into place one at a time. But it is so boxy. Not much tuition money has been spent on architectural frills. It is scheduled for use this fall. Landscaping is underway and there must be a lot going on inside.
Personally, I think it was more fun to look at two years ago.
