RICHLAND, WA - And then there were walls. The Hanford Reach Interpretive Center is beginning to take shape along the Columbia River in Richland.

All of the parking lot pavement is complete and part of the building is up now. On Thursday, crews poured concrete for the rest of the foundation. 

Project Manager John Koberg said they had to deal with some unexpected rocks but otherwise, the work is going smoothly.

"They'll actually start siding the east half of the building while they're erecting the west half. Then they'll move over to that side and start erecting that and our goal is to try to get the building weather tight by the end of November," said Koberg.

The building should be finished in February and the grand opening is scheduled for next July.
