Reflecting Pool Under Construction

The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool – a popular site for tourists in the nation’s capital – is undergoing a $31 million renovation thanks to a Recovery award from the Department of the Interior. Prime contractor Corman Construction of Annapolis, MD, has removed leaking concrete slabs on the bottom of the pool and is installing a new water circulation system and new storm drains. Nearly 108,000 square feet of surrounding walkways will also be improved. Work is expected to continue into 2012.
