The MOLLER experiment has been designed to significantly expand the reach for new dynamics beyond the Standard Model of electroweak interactions. Using the high intensity, high precision electron beam at Jefferson Lab, MOLLER will measure the parity-violating asymmetry $A_{PV}$ in the scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons off unpolarized electrons to an overall fractional accuracy of 2.4%. This measurement will be the most sensitive probe of new flavor- and CP-conserving neutral current interactions in the leptonic sector until the advent of a linear collider or neutrino factory. The collaboration has begun fabrication of the required apparatus, with an assembly expected to complete in JLab's experimental Hall A in 2026. The experimental design will be reviewed, along with the updated status and plans for executing the measurement.
