Project Status


Browe Construction is currently replacing truncated dome panels within the Downtown Durham Loop.

When replacing these panels, the contractor pours concrete in the area underneath, then places anchors in the concrete. The plastic is removed from the bottom of the panel then it is set in place. The panel is then bolted down to the anchors. The bolts are what hold it in place to keep it from breaking away as the old panels did. The plastic on top is left there for a few days until the concrete dries to protect the panel and leave the ramp looking nice when construction is finished.
