The article presents information about the renovation and extension of Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona. Workers will demolish the center's north building and a bridge, forcing the closure of the roadway until mid-October 2006. The 10-acre site will be excavated 50 feet below street level to result in the extension of an underground exhibition hall, and a four-story building that will have a food court, retail shops, a ball- room, and a meeting space. Crews are completing the first phase of construction. The Convention Center expansion is expected to complete by late 2008.
