Spring Groundbreaking Expected On Physics Project

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A massive physics research project at Michigan State University is expected to break ground this spring.

The U.S. Department of Energy last year estimated the cost of FRIB (F-rib) at $730 million. The aim is for completion between 2020 and 2022.

The East Lansing school won a national competition to host the project in 2008, but budget concerns have threatened funding.

Preparation work already is taking place on campus. Backers have estimated that the project will create 5,000 construction jobs and 400 permanent jobs.
