MSU Trustees To Take Up Rare Isotope Lab

The Michigan State University Board of Trustees meets Friday to consider whether to go ahead with construction of a new phase of a $600 million federally backed physics research facility.

The board is scheduled to vote on plans for building a 25 megawatt electrical duct bank for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams project.

The East Lansing school won a national competition to host the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams in 2008. Backers have estimated that the project will create 5,000 construction jobs and 400 permanent jobs.

The trustees also are to vote on construction of the North Neighborhood Engagement Center and Multicultural Center in the MSU Union. And they're scheduled to decide whether to proceed with energy-conservation measures for Anthony Hall.
