Next Structural Concrete Pour At MSU’s FRIB


EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Michigan State University’s quest to be a world leader in nuclear science takes another step forward today.

Construction officials are expected to begin the next concrete pour for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams known as FRIB.

It will help researchers discover new applications for medicine, national security and biology. Construction started in March with an official groundbreaking.

Today’s concrete pour is expected to take 30 hours with 300 trucks coming to the site.

Once complete, FRIB will add more than 400 permanent jobs on top of the thousands of jobs in construction to help build the facility. For more information on FRIB just click here.
