The Next Phase of a Multi-Million Dollar Project Underway at MSU

The promise is that the multi-million dollar project will bring not only needed revenue to Michigan, but also brain-power of the highest degree.  And that promise entered another step today toward completion.

Concrete being poured for F-RIB

 

WILX.com is reporting today that concrete work began this morning at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, also known as F-RIB.  The cement was the first of four rounds to be poured in the East Lansing facility’s tunnel structure.

The more than 700 million dollar project will attract scientists from all over the world,  MSU officials say.  They’ll be working primarily on medical breakthroughs along with developments in the area of national defense.

The report indicates that up to 5,000 construction jobs could be utilized and that 400 of them could be permanent.

The project, which has gained international recognition, has been in the planning stages for decades.  It’s being made possible with help from a federal grant.

It’s facility is set to be completed by the end of 2020.
