Concrete Poured for University Place Promenade (Time-Lapse Video)
On Wednesday the first part of the concrete foundation for the University Place Promenade was poured and smoothed during a daylong process. Work took place from the Schine Student Center toward Newhouse 3 (near South Crouse Avenue). Next week, the process will be repeated from Schine toward College Place. In all, a quarter mile of concrete will be poured.
Once the concrete is poured and curing is complete, a finely crushed stone material will be put into place before brick pavers are installed. Two crews working double shifts will be setting the brick pavers over 18 days, to cover the quarter-mile length of the promenade and the plinths.
