I am guessing this was discussed in another thread, but does the construction impede the ability to visit the memorial?

No problems visiting the memorial because of the reflecting pool construction.

Any idea when it's supposed to complete? Website says spring 2012. Am wondering if there's any buzz on a date or whether they are on schedule?

I'm wondering the same thing. I visited last year and it was really an eye sore without water in it. I'm considering planning a visit in the near future but would like to go when the project has been completed.

When I was there in Feb, the signs I had read stated that they were on track for May 2012 so they should be getting close. While its definitely not scenic, it certainly was a unique way to see the pool. I took a picture last year from Lincoln looking over the pool using the fisheye effect on my camera. 1 of my favorite pictures.

A recent story said that reflecting pool is due to reopen "this summer". stgeorgeutah.com/news/…

We were there last year when it was closed. Going back in June and the kids are really hoping it's set by then! Thanks for the updates.
