Copter aids construction of new Marshall facility
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Construction of the roof for Marshall University's new indoor athletic facility is complete, thanks to a helicopter.
Marshall director of facilities and planning Ron May says space confinements prevented using a crane to place panels on the roof's east side.
May tells the Herald-Dispatch that a helicopter was used to place the panels.
The building is expected to be completed by August 2014.
It will house a 120-yard football field, a track and other practice facilities.
