Ice Arch

Every winter the Civil Engineering students, along with the American Society for Civil Engineers and the Association of General Contractors, build an ice arch on campus. The students design the arch themselves and so therefore it is a little bit different every year. This year the ice arch stands 20 feet 6 inches tall and is 20 feet at the base. The arch is still in progress, so that is why you can see the wooden structure underneath the ice, but as soon as it is complete, the wooden structure will be removed and the arch is expected to stand on its own. Keep checking in for updates on the ice arch progress.
