Last structural beam in place for downtown arena
Construction workers, city leaders, the Louisville Arena Authority and University of Louisville officials celebrated the addition of the final structural beam to the new downtown arena March 29.
Since construction is ahead of schedule and the final beam already was placed, they signed a ceremonial beam that was hoisted with a flag and small tree to symbolize respect for nature.
The 22,000 seat arena is scheduled to open in November. It will be home to the UofL men's and women's basketball teams.
