New police center project delayed

March 12, 2003

Albany-- Construction on a new multi-million dollar Law Enforcement Center will not start on time.

Crews are taking advantage of the good weather to continue demolition on Ogelthorpe Boulevard, between Jackson and Washington Streets.

Construction on the $14.5 million Law enforcement Center was supposed to start Monday, but it's been difficult tearing down some of the old buildings on the site. 

"One of the buildings taking down is the old Sears building, and its been very formidable building," says ATI President Tommy Chatmon. "So they're experiencing delays slow them down. We're ten 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.
