MIDLAND - After a small delay, the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center is officially topped out.

Work crews placed the 17 ton beam at its highest resting place on Thursday morning.

UTPB originally planned to put the beam on the multi-million dollar facility on Tuesday, but couldn't because of technical difficulties.

Construction is expected to be finished by fall of 2011 with a grand opening planned for early 2012.
