Linac Coherent Light Source
The LCLS Races Forward

Inside the Near Experimental Hall crews are finishing out installation of utilities

Construction crews working on the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) site are busier than ever these days. Last week, the Beam Transport Hall, which bisects the research yard, began receiving the final yards of concrete for the roof after being connected to the Undulator Hall. On the other side of the hill, the Central Utilities Plant (CUP) is taking shape next to the Near Experimental Hall. You can keep track of the action in real-time with the LCLS webcams.
