Army: Ft Monroe cleanup at $60M to $70M Previous estimates put number as high as $700M WAVY-TV 10 News (VA) May 7, 2010HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - It will cost substantially less than expected to remove munitions dating to the Civil War and pollutants from moated Fort Monroe, the Army estimates.
The estimate is now in the range of $60 million to $70 million. Previous estimates put the number as high as $700 million.
The Army is scheduled to leave the historic fort on the Chesapeake Bay next year, when Virginia will assume ownership of the post. The Fort Monroe Federal Area Development Authority has sketched out a future use as a teacher institute that would draw on the post's Civil War heritage.
