TONIGHT ON NEWS 5: Construction jobs slowing down on Fort Carson

"For several years we averaged over $500 million of construction on Ft. Carson each year, and that provided a large number of jobs," says Hal Alguire, Fort Carson's director of public works. Alguire points out that those jobs helped a lot of people after the economy took a hit in recent years.

Right now, the $700 million Combat Aviation Brigade is the focus of construction moving forward at Fort Carson, but after the CAB is finished Alguire says the construction pace could be slowing down.

Wednesday night on News 5 we're getting an inside look at the big projects on the Mountain Post, and digging into what the future might look like for civilian construction jobs on Fort Carson.
