The American Museum of Science and Energy could move into its new location at Main Street Oak Ridge in June, officials said Tuesday.
Crews began work on Friday and “increased activity can be expected in the area over the coming weeks as construction progresses,” a press release said.
RealtyLink, the South Carolina company developing Main Street Oak Ridge, selected Oak Ridge-based Summit Construction as the contractor for the project, the press release said.
The start of construction was announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office and the City of Oak Ridge.
The new space for AMSE is located between the current JCPenney store and a future Marriott hotel, which is also under construction. The museum entrance will be on Main Street East. AMSE will be all on one floor, occupying approximately 18,000 square feet. [Read more…]
