The Army announced, March 8, the availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the realignment of Fort Lee.

The FEIS evaluates potential environmental and socioeconomic effects that would occur as a result of the implementation of realignment actions at Fort Lee, pursuant to recommendations of the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission, and related field training activities at Fort A.P. Hill.

A 45-day public review and comment period was provided for the Draft EIS. After a 30-day waiting period on the FEIS, a Record of Decision will be published.
