Last week for construction crane at YRMC

The crane that’s become a part of Yuma’s skyline over the past year is coming down on Friday.
It stands about 200 feet tall, with an arm of 210 feet, the crane has become a staple part of the hospital’s reconstruction and expansion, but this is the last week of it.
This – after a solid run on projects in Colorado, San Diego, and this project, right here in Yuma.
Ray Gomez, was the lucky  guy who got to call this crane his desk – as this crane has become the tallest crane to grace construction in Yuma.
After the crane comes down on Friday, there are no scheduled projects for it yet.
As for Ray, he is headed to Chandler on Monday to begin his next job as the crane operator.
