Los Angeles, California (CNN) - A construction site in Los Angeles set a new world-record for concrete pouring.
In downtown Los Angeles crews set the foundation for a future high-rise building.
More than 200 trucks made more than two-thousand trips over the weekend, bringing load after load of concrete to create a slab 18-feet thick.
A spokesman for the project says workers spent about 20 hours laying some 84-million pounds of concrete.
"This is a 2,200 concrete truck delivery in 26 hours: the concrete truck ballet -- only in l.a."
Just under 20 hours after the project started, the Guinness book of records announced crews had broken the world record for the longest continuous concrete pour.
