South Base has four hangers as well.quellish said:USACE does almost all milcon in SoCal.xstatic3000 said:So Sources Sought in December - they are probably refining requirements and finalizing the solicitation. This should probably hit the street in a few weeks. Interesting that it's USACE, but they support all branches of service in the name of "jointness". ;D
The CTF in question is for global strike/LRS.
There is also an ongoing environmental cleanup at South Base.
It is not clear if this solicitation uses the 77.130m allocated for LRS-B milcon, though that money was RDTE and specifically not for hangars/buildings.
In reading through the EPA docs it looks like the biggest environmental problem at South Base was leaking JP4 tanks in the 70's and 80's and material from an old gas station and auto shop. The ongoing environmental cleanup is to restore groundwater that was was contaminated. This shouldn't affect any plans to revamp the four hangers and flight line areas though.
South Base seems to have the advantage of being much more convenient for personnel as well as more secluded from civilians.
