Work is under way on a major improvement project at the DeLong's Inc. site off of Dix Road in Jefferson City, and it will continue for the next several weeks.
"We are replacing the main craneway, which was originally put in back in 1959," said Bob Bachta, executive vice president and general manager at DeLong's. "At that time, we had a 7 1/2-ton lifting capacity. And over the years, we went up 20 tons. The improvements we're making now will bring our capacity to 50 tons. In addition, our column spacing is much wider to move long material in and out of the craneway."
