Construction underway at civil rights memorial in downtown Montgomery

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Construction is underway at the civil rights memorial in downtown Montgomery.

A spokesperson for the Southern Poverty Law Center said the memorial has been operating under the original water pump since the 1980s, so it is time to replace it.

The monument is also being resurfaced.

Construction is expected to be completed by late October or early November.
