FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — The Defense Department has awarded another multimillion-dollar construction contract for a new helicopter brigade at Fort Carson.

The Pentagon said Friday that Loyd Contracting of Titusville, Fla., was awarded an $18.2 million contract for roads, sidewalks and parking along with electrical, communications, gas, water and wastewater systems.

The 13th Combat Aviation Brigade will have up to 2,700 soldiers and 113 helicopters. It will supplement the 4th Infantry Division based at the post outside Colorado Springs.

The Pentagon has now announced contracts worth nearly $74 million in construction for the brigade since mid-August. Previous contracts were $44.8 million for an aircraft hangar and $10.9 million for an aviation control tower.

All the construction to accommodate the brigade is expect to take four years and cost a total of about $730 million.
