Construction Begins on National Law Enforcement Museum

March 09, 2011  | 


Workers have begun reconfiguring underground utilities and water lines to pave the way for construction of the National Law Enforcement Museum's structure, the National Law Eenforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) announced.

Following the museum's groundbreaking on Oct. 14, workers began this first phase on Jan. 3. The movement of underground utilities and running water should be completed by November.

The NLEOMF board of directors must also approve construction drawings for the building and design drawings for exhibits. These documents are now being drafted, and are projected to be completed after November. Construction on the museum's structure is estimated to start in 2012 and involves digging underground about two and a half stories then building back up.

During what will likely be a 20-month process, exhibit fabricators will be building the museum's interactive exhibits. When the core, shell, and interior of the museum are complete, installation of the exhibits will commence and will take about six months to be fully installed.

Museum staff will continue to develop educational programs for in-person and online visitors. The museum is expected to open in late 2013. Follow the progress at the museum's Web site.
