AMES, Iowa - Construction crews raised the 357,000-pound video board support structure or "truss" on top of the Jacobson Athletic Building in the early hours Wednesday morning. The entire process took about two hours

A 600-ton crane on the east side and a 550-ton crane on the west side put the 357,000-pound truss in its resting place.

Click the "play" link in the photo above or the embedded video player below to see a video of the cranes lifting the truss. The video was taken from the camera bay on the top of the old scoreboard in the south end zone.
