Department to pick firm for cemetery construction

MONTEVALLO, Ala. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
is set to pick a company for the next phase of construction at the
Alabama National Cemetery.

The job includes construction of two buildings, utilities, a memorial walkway and 9,000 additional gravesites.

The estimated cost of the work will be between $10 million and $20 million.

Quincy Whitehead, executive director of the Alabama National
Cemetery, said a contract should be awarded in 60 days.

Burials started last month at the 479-acre cemetery off Alabama
119 in Montevallo.
