FORT BENNING, GA (AP) - Despite a slowdown in military construction, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says Fort Benning is preparing for three more projects next year, valued at more than $30 million.
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that expansion of a rail loading facility is tentatively scheduled to start in September. The $13.6 million project expected to be completed in January 2014.
Construction on a trainee barracks, valued at up to $10 million, is set to begin next March and take until September 2013 to finish. Construction of a central issue facility also should begin in March and wrap up in the fall of the following year. It has a price tag of $7 million.
The $30.6 million in projects are on top of 3 more large contracts already awarded this year.
