There will be five street lights along the sidewalk leading to the memorial at South Muskogee Avenue and the Bertha Parker Bypass.

The infrastructure giving access to the memorial from Reasor's parking lot is almost finished.

Chapter Commander Donald Nichols mentioned that donations are still needed to finish sidewalks, install safety railing, and purchase benches. They hope to complete the work by mid-August in anticipation of receiving the sculpture in September.
