First troops stay in new barracks at Fort McCoy
Vehicles for troops are located outside the first of several four-story transient training troops barracks June 9, 2022, at Fort McCoy, Wis. The new barracks was officially opened for use in May 2022 by the Fort McCoy Directorate of Public Works and the first troops to stay in it started in early June 2022. A $20.6 million contract was awarded to L.S. Black Constructors, Inc., in September 2019 to build the barracks, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Resident Office at Fort McCoy which managed the project. The barracks, which is built in the 1600 block on the Fort McCoy cantonment area, is different than traditional barracks that are located throughout the installation. This new building is four stories and is able to house 400 people in approximately 60,000 square feet. (U.S. Army Photo by Scott T. Sturkol, Public Affairs Office, Fort McCoy, Wis.)
