The Oak Ridge Senior Center will be temporarily closed starting Monday, September 16, to allow the staff to relocate to the new Senior Center on the west side of the Civic Center.
The temporary closure was announced by the Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department.
Construction of the new center was finished on schedule, and staff can now occupy the space to complete final preparations, a press release said.
The new Oak Ridge Senior Center is located at 1405 Oak Ridge Turnpike, next door to the center’s current temporary location inside the Civic Center’s Recreation Building.
Crews estimate that the Senior Center closure will remain in effect through at least Wednesday, September 25. During this time, no regularly scheduled senior center activities or programs will take place, the press release said.
A possible opening date for the new building will be announced once the transition is close to being complete, the press release said. Information on a ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony for the new Oak Ridge Senior Center will also be announced soon.
Questions can be directed to the Civic Center front desk for the Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department at (865) 425-3450.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
