East Lansing— The construction of a new national facility for nuclear
science at Michigan State University is continuing with the addition of 140
truckloads of concrete.
The concrete was poured Wednesday for a portion of a tunnel floor in what
will be the school’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. The tunnel will hold the
facility’s superconducting linear accelerator, which will produce beams of
subatomic particles traveling at half the speed of light.
Reid Goniwiecha, regional sales manager for Superior Materials LLC, said it
would take 19 trucks about eight hours to do the job.
He said crews will need to complete four more concrete pours just to finish
the floor of the tunnel. The next pour will take place in a couple of weeks,
after the area has been waterproofed and reinforced with steel.

The $730 million research facility, known as FRIB, is funded by the
Department of Energy Office of Science, Michigan State University and the
state of Michigan. The university won a national competition to host the
project in 2008.
The 227,000 square foot building is expected to open sometime between
2020 and 2022.
