The U.S. Army has chosen to build a new reserve center at a site near Orangeburg.
The 15-acre Army Reserve Center is expected to cost nearly $12 million.
The Orangeburg Times and Democrat reports the training center will be built on Cook Road, near Interstate 26, on the city’s northeast side.
Program Manager Dale Polston says the site will include a 34,000 square-foot training building and a 5,000 square-foot maintenance shop.
The site will provide reserve units with space to assemble, perform weapons simulations and train physically.
Polston says the new center will also feature a library and learning center.
Eight Army Reserve units will use the site. Construction could begin as early as this summer.
