Below is the latest status on an arrival date for the shuttle mock-up in the Clear Lake area. My source for the information was Paul Spana, Exhibits manager at Space Center Houston
Communications and Outreach Branch
NASA Johnson Space Center
The shuttle mock-up will come through Clear Lake by barge and will then be transferred down NASA Road 1 into Space Center Houston's parking lot. The mock-up will be installed on the east side of the visitors' center.
Space Center Houston (SCH) is currently working on the logistics to bring the shuttle mock-up to Houston from Florida. SCH is exploring different options for moving the mock-up through Clear Lake.
Until some key details regarding the move have been resolved, the move is temporarily on hold. Depending on which plan is used, the move may not happen for several more months.
Meetings are ongoing with several organizations to discuss the best logistics. Meanwhile, the site is being prepared for the arrival, no earlier than July 2012.

I know this will make all of you cry a little and for different reasons but I am going to turn off the anon button for a few days. I won’t have access to a keyboard and I don’t want some doped up anon posting nekkid pictures of themselves and their ex while explaining to you why you need to vote for X. It will be turned back on Sunday. Thanks for playing.
