The Syracuse, NY skyline is getting a makeover, thanks to a new 68,000 lbs. JMA sign. Work is underway on the west side to prepare for installation of new signage on the JMA Dome’s crown truss.
Previously known as the Carrier Dome, a Manitowoc Lattice Boom Crawler Crane provided by JPW Erectors is on site to handle to the lifting scheduled to begin Friday, January 20. A Link Belt telescopic crawler crane is also on site to assist with the project.
Syracuse University Vice President and Chief Facilities Officer, Pete Sala said the lifting is more likely to happen early next week. The letters are so big that multiple sections are being delivered separately and the sign will be assembled onsite and then erected in one piece.
A second planned closure will occur in February 2023 to allow for the Manitowoc crawler crane to be disassembled.
