Hanford Reach Interpretive Center Construction Makes Progress

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Construction on the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center is making headway and is on track for their July 2014 opening.

The basement of the building is now completed and the floor of the first level is installed.

Next, the walls will go up for the first floor and the structure is due to be complete by the end of the year. Then they'll move on to the interiors.

"The first floor is definitely a milestone to get that up. The next big milestone is we'll start seeing this thing go up in the air and you'll be able to see it from the highway," said John Koberg, project manager.

Curbs for the roadways around the building are in and workers are preparing the gravel roads to be paved with asphalt later this month.
