MONTEVALLO, Ala. (AP) - A Department of Veterans Affairs official says an expansion project at the Alabama National Cemetery should be completed next year.
Christopher English, the engineer overseeing the project, says
the project will add more than 7,500 burial spaces, enough to be
sufficient until 2020.
He says the expansion will bring the number of graves to more than 9,700.
English says a public information center and maintenance building are 30 percent completed.
He says stormwater and grading work is 90 percent finished.
