Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today announced a $27,330,750 award from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to complete Fort Drum’s Railhead Project that will expedite the rapid deployment of troops, vehicles, and equipment from the base.
“As the leading advocate in Congress for Fort Drum and the 10th Mountain Division, I am proud to help deliver this critical award that will strengthen the Fort Drum community and enhance our military readiness,” Stefanik said. “Rapid deployment capability is one of the core features of Fort Drum’s critical role in our nation’s defense, and this award will greatly improve the readiness of the 10th Mountain Division, the most deployed Army division since 9/11. I will continue to advocate for ways to strengthen Fort Drum and our nation’s military.”
