After working since 7 p.m. last night to pour the foundation for the basin that will hold Isle of Capri Cape Girardeau's floating gaming floor the last two concrete trucks pulled out about 4:30 this morning.
About 40 trucks an hour came to the site throughout the overnight hours delivering 2,100 cubic yards of concrete.
Police directed traffic at the intersections of Broadway and Sprigg Street and Broadway and Main Street to keep the truck traffic flowing smoothly to the Isle site.

This morning, Isle spokeswoman Jill Alexander said everything went according to plan and there were no problems during the pour.
"Everyone should be commended for a job well done," she said.
In addition to the 50 workers on site, 30 of whom live in a 50 mile radius of Cape Girardeau, Delta Companies had 68 employees working last night, both on site and at its three batch plans used to supply the concrete for the pour.
