The first walls of the $40 million Outlet Village of Hagerstown were raised Monday, keeping the mall on track for a mid-summer opening.
Project Manager Jim Eldridge said the 233,000-square-foot first phase of construction is on schedule, with foundations laid and concrete floors poured for three of the four buildings.
A grand opening date will depend on the weather, Eldridge said.
The 30-foot-tall, 30-ton walls were to have been raised last week, but crews were delayed by rain.
Eldridge said work to upgrade Sharpsburg Pike to include additional turn lanes and an upgrade of Oak Ridge Drive should begin in the next few weeks.
