construction

The PIP-II team has installed two webcams for documenting the construction of the conventional facilities to house the PIP-II accelerator and related work. Watch the buildings go up in real time, or have fun looking at time-lapse videos of the site development and construction. The webcams are located on the 16th floor of Wilson Hall, looking east, and the Fermilab Main Ring infield, looking west-northwest. Steve Dixon of the PIP-II Project team led the webcam installation effort.  

On Friday, May 15, the IERC project will be permanently opening the AZero berm crossing to traffic. This will facilitate the closure of the Wilson Hall east lot and the next phase of additional site prep. Additionally the Wilson Hall ground-floor east entrance will be temporarily closed until the completion of the IERC project. As always thank you for patience. 2020-05-12_5ebad1adb9d8c_IERCRoadClosurePlanBermOpening05-15-2020

As a part of the IERC site prep project, the Wilson Hall east drive closure will progress again to the south. This work will temporarily impact access to the Wilson Hall loading dock. The loading dock’s northern bay will be reopened with access to the dock from Kautz Rd. from the north. The southern bay will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 27, to Friday, March 6. As always, thank you for your continued patience.

From Tunnels and Tunneling, Feb. 19, 2020: Three of the underground construction components are near completion at the Sanford Underground Research Facility for the far site of Fermilab’s Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility. Work is finishing up on two ore passes that connect the 4850 Level, almost one mile underground, to skips in the Ross Shaft; the Ross Headframe, which must support the skips that bring the rock to the surface; and the tramway tunnel, which will house the conveyor system that will transport excavated rock to its final location.

Site prep construction at Fermilab has started! On Wednesday, Jan. 15, from noon-1 p.m., join us for the latest updates on current and upcoming construction for the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF). Bring your lunch and your questions to One West (WH1W), where project experts will be on hand. We’ll also share brief updates on construction for: Integrated Engineering Research Center (IERC) Proton Improvement Plan-II (PIP-II) Utilities Infrastructure Project (UIP) Core Campus Revitalization Project (CCRP) This Lunch and Learn is hosted…
