WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

60 trucks were ready to go Thursday at Midwestern State University as concrete was poured for the first floor of the Gunn College of Health Sciences building.

Anytime they plan on adding concrete to the structure they plan to be done by 8 a.m. to keep the trucks out of traffic near the university.

The project started in mid-December and they are still on track to be finished by May 2019.

The 280 foot, 200-ton crane will be there through August as Trinity Hughes Construction builds the structure for the floors.

A second smaller crane will be brought in to help with the fourth floor.

All the concrete should be done by the time Fall classes start.
