The Syracuse Section toured the Utica Memorial Auditorium, an ASCE Historical Civil Engineering Landmark. ASCE member Paul Romano, P.E., led the tour along with arena staff.
Opened in 1960, the landmark was the first of its kind. Lev Zetlin designed the cable-suspended roof system and became one of three arenas worldwide with unobstructed views. The arena recently underwent a series of multi-million-dollar renovations and is home to the American Hockey League’s Utica Comets.
Keep up with the Section on Facebook.
