Groundbreaking set for new Veterans Cemetery

A late October groundbreaking ceremony is planned for the Southwest Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Dublin.
According to Virginia Department of Veterans Services, design and engineering for the project has been completed. Sealed construction bids were received July 8.
The selected bid package has been submitted to the National Cemetery Administration (NCA) for review. NCA must review and approve the package before the Commonwealth will receive the construction grant funds to move forward with the project.
Veterans Services expects the review process to be completed sometime in September so that a groundbreaking can be scheduled for late October.
The cemetery will be located on 80 acres of land Radford Army Ammunitions Plant donated to Virginia in 2008.
Plans call for a four-phase development with expansion of the cemetery to take place as gravesites are needed. The first phase of construction will include 5,250 gravesites for caskets, 500 above ground cremation sites, 500 in-ground cremation sites, a committal shelter, office, maintenance complex and an assembly area.
Completion of the first phase is expected by the end of September 2010 so that the first interment can take place.
