Installation of the first super truss for the Bemidji Regional Event Center has been delayed.

Crews had been expected to install the first of the three trusses this morning, but there were "technical difficulties," according to project manager Clinton Gronhovd with Kraus-Anderson.

The installation of the truss has been delayed until Friday morning, he said.

The truss expected to be installed today is the smallest of the three trusses at 130 feet long. The other other, which are expected to be installed Monday and Wednesday mornings, are 267 feet long.
