Construction continues on the new Williams Inn, a $32 million steel and concrete structure, which now stands three stories tall at the bottom of Spring Street.

The Berkshire Eagle reports the main objective at present is to seal the exterior — the walls, windows and roof — before the snow flies, so workers can concentrate on the 58,000-square-foot interior through the winter.

The new inn will be smaller and it will look much different. The new structure will have siding of stone and wood.

Williams College is overseeing the Williams Inn project. The goal is to be open in a year.
