Bridge Lifted into Place at Convention Center

Another piece of the puzzle is in place at the expanded Phoenix Convention Center.

The 82 ton bridge connecting the convention center’s west and north buildings is now in place.

Heavy duty cranes lifted the 150 foot section of steel, 54 feet above 3rd Street just north of Washington.

Phase One on the convention center was completed in July 2006 with the opening of the new West Building.

Phase Two, the North Building, is scheduled for completion in December.

The $600 million expansion of the city’s convention center began in 2003, and once completed, will triple the size of the old Civic Plaza.
