This year we start assembling the DIRC detector to upgrade the particle identification capabilities in the forward region of the GlueX detector in Hall D at Jefferson Lab. The main components of the GlueX DIRC are the four radiator boxes (reused from the decommissioned BaBar DIRC) and two photon cameras, which were designed based on the prototype for the SuperB FDIRC. The first radiator box has already arrived to JLab from SLAC, where the delicate BaBar radiator boxes have been stored for the last 10 years. It will be attached to the newly built photon camera and installed in the Hall D already for the 2018 fall run. We present the status of the GlueX DIRC project including the ongoing R&D and the plan for the future.
