The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts will be moving serious weight Saturday when they install the 142-ton roof atop Steinmetz Hall.

One lane of South Street between Rosalind and Orange avenues will be closed at 10 a.m. Friday, March 29, to install a crane in the intersection of South Street and Magnolia Avenue. Two cranes will work in tandem to raise the one-piece cantilever-design roof.

Bus traffic turning west from Magnolia onto South will continue throughout the installation, and the closed lane of South Street should be reopened by 5 p.m. Sunday, March 31.

Ticketed performances at the Dr. Phillips Center will continue as scheduled throughout the weekend.
