Albany-- Construction on Albany's new multi-million dollar Law Enforcement Center will not start on time.
Crews are taking advantage of the good weather to continue demolition on this block of Oglethorpe Boulevard, between Jackson and Washington Streets. Construction on the 14.5 million dollar Law enforcement Center was suppose to start Monday, but it's been difficult tearing down some of the old buildings on the site.
ATI President Tommy Chatmon says, "One of the buildings taking down is the old Sears building and its been very formidable building, so experiencing delays slow them down. 10 days to two weeks behind schedule but going well generally speaking."
The actual construction of the Law Enforcement Center is expected to begin in April or early May.
