GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame will close next month to make way for construction, and is scheduled to reopen in April 2015.
The Hall of Fame, which is in the basement of the Lambeau Field Atrium, will be moved to make way for a new Packers Pro Shop, the Press-Gazette Media reported (http://gbpg.net/1gQLANw ).
The new Packers Hall of Fame will be located in sections of the first and second floors of the atrium.
While the hall is closed, some of its artifacts and memorabilia will be lent to the Neville Public Museum. The team said details of that arrangement will announced later.
The new Pro Shop will be larger and located in a revamped ground level. The atrium will remain open for events throughout construction.
The construction is part of a $141 million project that's being paid for in full by the team, with no public money.
Of the $20 million spent on atrium work so far, 97 percent has gone to Wisconsin businesses, the Packers said. That includes 42 percent spent on Brown County businesses.
The team estimates this phase of construction will employ about 1,500 workers over the next two years.
