rubble pile from Storms Hall

Diminishing piles

Crews have been working since July 25 to remove the piles of concrete rubble that once were Knapp and Storms (pictured) residence halls. The process is expected to wrap up around Sept. 15.

Steel reinforcement rods are being pulled from the concrete. Project manager Kerry Dixon-Fox said about 95 percent of the concrete will be recovered and used as road bed at the new dairy complex south of Ames.

Dixon-Fox said the Towers site will be grass seeded yet this fall, with some plantings to follow in the spring. Photo by Bob Elbert.
