Officials in Clark County say a $3 million project to relocate a road away from a military base is necessary for security reasons and will help keep the facility open.
The Dayton Daily News reports that moving the road away from the Springfield Air National Guard base is necessary to satisfy post-9/11 military security standards.
Officials say moving the 1.4 miles of Route 794 will help keep the base open and preserve the 1,000 or so jobs there. The local chamber of commerce has estimated that the base has an annual economic impact of $95.2 million in Springfield.
