Abstract
The Mu2e experiment at Fermilab will search for new physics through the observance of the neutrino-less decay of a muon to an electron in the presence of a nucleus. The experiment will have a single-event sensitivity of $3\times10^{-17}$, requiring an active cosmic-ray veto to keep background from cosmic rays to fewer than one event over the three year lifetime of the experiment. The Mu2e Cosmic Ray Veto (CRV) has been designed to have an efficiency of 99.99\%. The design and fabrication of the CRV will be discussed.
