Here are some photos of progress of our Vision Project
that we would like to share with you
Our “Vision” project was officially approved by the State of Michigan on 12Apr22.
The construction contract was awarded to Moyle Construction on 20Apr22
The pre-construction meeting was held at 10:00 AM on Fri, 6May, at the LSSC facilities.
Present were representatives from LSSC, the State, the state’s prime design contractor, NFE, and OHM, a sub-contractor to NFE, and the construction contractor, Moyle Construction. The weather was great and the meeting was held outside rather than in the archery room as planned.
After the pre-con meeting, about 11:00 AM, a ground breaking ceremony was held at the new construction site. Many of the same persons attended.
Below are some photos of the pre-construction meeting and the groundbreaking.
