More than 300 construction workers and ironworkers celebrated with MGM Resorts International officials this morning as a giant crane lifted into place the last of some 7,000 steel beams weighing a total of 7,100 tons to top off and encircle the new MGM Arena that will open behind Monte Carlo next spring.

Now begins the interior work on concession areas, steps, seating and boxes for patrons. Execs with MGM Resorts and partner AEG, along with Clark County officials, signed the final beam before it was hoisted into place.
