Since the September 14 Groundbreaking Ceremony, construction crews from Scott-Long Construction and Shirley Contracting Company, LLC have mobilized onto the museum site and begun construction on the site. The initial focus of the construction activities has been on installing erosion and sediment control measures, which allowed the commencement of rough grading (leveling) of the future roadways and utilities infrastructure that will support the museum. A cut through from the Fairfax County Parkway to Liberty Drive has been completed. The Service Drive to the museum pad is scheduled to be completed by 31 January 2017. The completion of the Service Drive will facilitate Clark Construction being able to access the museum pad allowing Clark to mobilize its construction crews onsite and thereby begin construction of the museum.
