Bass Pro Shops is on schedule to begin construction of its new store this summer.

"We're prepping the site," developer Robert Christoph Sr., principal of Bridgeport Landing Development LLC, said last week.

As part of his company's deal with Bass Pro, Christoph said, he agreed to not only install utilities but also to construct a concrete pad on which the store can be built. That process is now underway.

While calls to Bass Pro were not returned last week, David Kooris, Bridgeport's economic development director, said steel would be on the site in August.

The start of construction this summer would be a boon to a proposed waterfront and tourist destination, which has been talked about for several decades. The store's project itself is two years in the making.
