Work Begins on Veterans Center in Hardin County

Work has begun on a veteran's center planned in Hardin County even though officials are still awaiting final approval from federal officials.

Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Ken Lucas told The News-Enterprise that the project in Radcliff has gotten preliminary approval and there's no indication that it won't get final approval soon.

A construction bid for the Radcliff Veterans Center nursing facility has already been awarded and excavation at the site, which is adjacent to the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central, is underway.

Lucas says the final cost of the facility is estimated at $40 million, with the state paying 35% and the federal government paying 65%.

He said it will be the fourth nursing center in Kentucky authorized specifically for veterans.
