Helicopter to be on CU-Boulder campus Wednesday

Published: Nov. 20, 2012


A helicopter will be in use on the University of Colorado Boulder campus near Folsom Field from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, to assist with an operation to upgrade existing wireless equipment.

The helicopter will land in lot 375 north of Franklin Field around 8 a.m. and then be used several times during the day to remove existing equipment from the roof of the stadium’s skyboxes and lift new equipment into place. A helicopter will be used because the distance required for maintenance is too far for the reach of a crane.

The area will be monitored by CU police officers and traffic will be restricted on Franklin Drive.
