Hanford REACH Interpretive Center Design Plans are Set

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- After nearly a decade of planning and fundraising efforts, the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center is almost a reality.

CEO of the Richland Facilities District Board, Lisa Toomey toasted everyone with sparking cider, after not only selecting a Richland engineering company, but a design plan as well.

DGR Grant Construction will build the 15,000 square foot interpretive center in the West end of Columbia Park and they hope to be finished by February of next year.

The board says they have the $3.5 million for the interactive museum and are excited to work with the department of Fish and Wildlife who will be paying $2.8 million for an entire gallery inside the building.

"If the inside is anything like the outside of this building. if our exhibits are as good as this building, its going to be a real great place to bring your family again and again to see the different exhibits, the changing exhibits that we have," said Rick Jansons, the Vice President of the board.

Some other features include a Missoula Floods concrete floor and a Native American Log house. Jansons says the board hopes to have the Reach Interpretive Center open to the public by June of 2014.
