Hanford Reach Interpretive Center Walls Go Up

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- The new Hanford Reach Interpretive Center now has walls.

The ten year saga to build the museum now has a structure to show for it.

Friday, workers poured concrete walls for the basement.

After many financial and planning road blocks, the Richland PFD decided to build a smaller structure and hire local contractors to get the building off the ground.

Construction is on schedule to open the center next year.

"Progress is going very well. Ten months ago we didn't have a design. Today the designs are complete. The building is going up."

Koberg says construction will finish in February, interiors will be complete by June and a grand opening celebration will welcome the public inside in early July 2014.
