Country Crossing progress moving along

Posted by: Daniel Curtis - bio | email

DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Construction on Country Crossing, the multimillion dollar entertainment venue is moving right along.

The entire project is being built in three phases and phase one is set to open later this year.

Over three hundred people are working daily, doing everything from installing air conditioning to outdoor lighting at the construction site.

"We are full steam ahead," says Mark Sheldon, vice president of construction for Ronnie Gilley Properties.

Phase one of the multimillion dollar project is set to open December 1st.  It includes the almost 100 thousand square foot bingo pavilion, three restaurants, bed and breakfast, and more.

"Everything is on schedule with all those venues, the restaurants are doing great, we have nine different trades working inside the restaurants and bed and breakfast today and everything is just rolling smoothly right now," says Sheldon.

Sheldon is working on a set schedule he says everyone wants to meet the December deadline and progress being made.

"Everyone is just really focused at the task at hand, we are under such a timeline to get open December 1st everyone is so focused on that," adds Sheldon.

When it comes to obstacles on the jobsite Sheldon says their biggest challenge has been Mother Nature.  "We haven't had a dry day in august yet, but as well when you're out on the site you don't see it being a hindrance," explains Sheldon. 

There is no slowing down once phase one is complete work begins right away on phase two.  Work on the entire project is set to take seven years.
