Hundreds of concrete trucks will descend on downtown streets over the next month, adding to traffic and making noise, as the next phase of the downtown arena construction project gets underway.
Starting at 7 p.m. Friday night, contractors will begin pouring the massive foundation for the downtown sports and entertainment arena between L and K, and Fifth and Sixth streets.
The Kings group has city approval to do the pouring 24 hours a day. Officials say the pour will last until March 4, and will be continuous because the pours cannot be interrupted.
The work will require an estimated 220 concrete truck trips. The trucks will be routed along J Street between Sixth and Seventh streets, and Fifth and I streets.
