Child Care Center Leads New Round of Construction
By Rich McManus
Ground will soon be broken for a new campus Child Care Center, located just east of the
Natcher Bldg. near Rockville Pike. This project, scheduled to last about a year, will
accommodate 100 children (most hailing from the current day care facility in Bldg. 35). The
project leads a fresh round of construction that includes the new North Electrical Substation, a
low-rise structure tucked into woods west of the Children's Inn, which breaks ground this
summer, and a new Fire Station, to sit partially upon what is now parking lot 10K near Center
Drive and Old Georgetown Road, which is slated to start this fall.
