DANBURY, Conn. (AP) -- The military is beginning construction of a new Armed Forces Reserve Center in Danbury.
The $34 million complex will be home to approximately 1,000 soldiers from the Army Reserves as well as two companies of the Connecticut Army National Guard.
Connecticut's two U.S. senators, Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal, are scheduled to speak at the groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday.
The complex of the Army Reserve's 99th Regional Support Command will include a 96,000-square-foot training facility and a joint vehicle maintenance shop.
The contract for the project was awarded last August to Korte-Fusco Joint Venture of St. Louis.
