Installation work began on Dec. 18, said Glenn Behnke, project manager for Mustang Construction. The center courts, which can accommodate basketball and volleyball, have been glued to the concrete. Bricks were placed on the surfaces to hold the seams tight until the glue set.
Also installed were red tiles for the long jump runways and darker gray tiles for other parts of the arena.
A Grand Opening for the Al Carius Track and Frank Gramarosso Gallery in the Res/Rec Center will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, during the 26th annual Alumni Indoor Track and Field Meet. The meet starts at 5 p.m. with field events.
