How's That Deck Park Coming, Anyhow?
Says Winters, 27 beams are coming up from near Waco almost each weekend; a batch is due this Friday, matter of fact, and another is set to arrive the Friday after that. Hence the freeway closures, Friday to Sunday, when the construction cam's at its most active. He says the plant can only cast eight beams -- which weigh 80 to 90 tons and span 100 feet -- at a time, and it takes a good half hour to unload each one. "I'd sure hate to be behind 'em on I-35," says Winters.
