Reserve breaks ground on Belvoir BRAC headquarters
Sunday - 10/31/2010, 10:31pm EDT
The Army Reserve is breaking ground Monday on an 88,000 square-foot headquarters at Fort Belvoir Monday. The new $19 million facility will accommodate more than 400 workers who now occupy leased space in Crystal City.
The mass exodus of government workers to Fort Belvoir is part of the federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) plan.
Local leaders have criticized the plan and say the construction comes with no major road improvements. Workers will be moving from transit-oriented areas like Crystal City to an area accessible mostly by car in Fort Belvoir.
However, a longtime gap in the Fairfax County Parkway has been completed as part of the plan.
