After eight years, construction on Macon's Tubman African American Museum could resume this fall.

That's according to Andy Ambrose, the museum's director.

He's said that before. But this time, he's got millions of dollars in SPLOST funds behind him.

Contractors started work in 2001 on the 49,000-square-foot building on Cherry Street.

Then the economy went sour. the project ran out of money and work stopped in 2005.

Ambrose says they're meeting with contractors to work up a plan.

He hopes to re-start the work this fall.

But he warns -- as usual -- that nothing is in concrete.
