K-25 cleanup plans change|
New policies increase safety measures; Trice named project manager

OAK RIDGE - Kelly Trice once managed the cleanup of "the most dangerous building in America," a plutonium-laden facility at the Rocky Flats warhead plant in Colorado.

Trice will oversee the dismantling of the mile-long, U-shaped structure built during World War II to process uranium for atomic bombs. At the time of its construction, K-25 was the world's largest building under one roof. Sixty years later, it's just a big mess.
