RUCKERSVILLE, Va. -- The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety expects to complete a $30 million expansion at its Ruckersville campus by late 2014.

Construction of new vehicle testing facilities began in March.

The project includes a larger outdoor test track, a domed vehicle testing area, an office building and a smaller support building.

President and CEO Paul Perrone tells The Daily Progress ( ) that the institute expects to hire an additional 10 employees when the expansion is completed.

The institute is the home of the "crash-test dummy."
