Construction of the elevator in the AFGS Franco-American Heritage Center is about 90 percent complete. The $300,000 project is funded in part by a $148,000 matching grant from the Rhode Island Historic Preservation and Heritage Commission.
The elevator will allow access to all three levels of the 19,000 square foot building. The campaign to raise the $148,000 match began last year.
Construction is expected to be completed by early November.
