STURGEON BAY (WLUK) -- An expansion project at the Door County Maritime Museum is a go.

Museum leaders announced Friday that they have raised $2.5 million of what is now a $5.5 million goal for the project.

Expansion plans include a 10-story tower, with an elevator ride to a enclosed observation deck with a 360-degree view of Sturgeon Bay. Each story would have a specific historical theme.

The Door County Maritime Museum & Lighthouse Preservation Society says it expects to finish fundraising in mid-2018 and hopes to break ground in June. Construction is expected to take a year.
