It's good to see the government bring these projects on post. This makes me less worried about another BRAC situation.

This is article that talks about how five years ago. Fort gordon could have been closed due to brac. But now with several new goverment projects. There is no chance of that happening.

An eight-year, $365 million project will renovate 18 of the fort's 40-year-old barracks. Four dining facilities, four battalion headquarters, a brigade headquarters and eight administrative buildings also will undergo renovation.

$49 million Warrior Transition Battalion campus slated for construction next year, and the continued upgrades to the fort's party barracks, and we're looking at $400 million being infused into the local economy over the next eight years.

National Security Agency's communications center -- a $340 million project expected to employ up to 4,000 people by 2012.

Last August, the $5.7 million Battle Command Battle Laboratory was completed, a facility in which new communication concepts and systems are tested. And $110 million worth of work is still going on to renovate and build 877 on-base homes for military families.

Fort Gordon has 16,000 military personnel, and an attendant 5,600 civilian employees and contract workers. It's the CSRA's biggest employer, easily.
