June 9, 2014

Nicole Cooke | Democrat Members of the Septagon Construction crew, of Sedalia, work to install a steel beam at the site of the new Rick Ball Ford in the 2400 block of Broadway Boulevard on Monday. “It’s going well,” said Project Executive Dean Eckhoff. “We got a late start because of the extreme winter, but other than that it’s going well.” The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

Nicole Cooke | Democrat Despite rain on and off all day, workers with Septagon construction work on laying masonry and setting steel at the new Rick Ball Ford site on Monday. Crews were also grading the site to prepare for pouring concrete next week.

Nicole Cooke | Democrat Although recent rain has “not been helping,” Project Executive Dean Eckhoff, with Septagon Construction, told the Democrat on Monday the Rick Ball Ford project is “for the most part on schedule.” The project will replace the current Rick Ball Ford, located at 1700 W. Broadway Blvd.
