Tri Cities Readiness Center

30000808

The Bellingham Armory was closed in 2012, displacing Washington National Guard members into a constrained number of Readiness Centers and prompting the need for additional, modern facilities. This project will construct a new Readiness Center in the Tri Cities on a 40-acre parcel of land acquired by the Military Department in a previous biennium, creating a new modern space for Guard members in support of state and federal missions. A reappropriation of funds is also granted.

Stryker Canopies Kent Site

40000073

The Washington Army National Guard recently acquired Stryker vehicles and is transitioning its 81st Brigade into a Stryker Brigade. Strykers are light, agile vehicles that can travel on area roadways and greatly assist our communities during a disaster response. The wet weather conditions in the Pacific Northwest can cause a lot of damage to the costly Strykers since they are prone to taking in rain water. This project will design and construct a canopy at the Kent site that will protect and prolong the life of the assets within the 81st Stryker Brigade Combat Team.

Montesano Field Maintenance Shop (FMS) Addition

40000095

The existing Field Maintenance Shop is not equipped to support recently acquired Stryker vehicles, which are lighter, more agile vehicles that can be used on area roadways to assist communities during a disaster response. Stryker vehicles require a facility that is modern and large enough to maintain the high-tech equipment. This project will upgrade the shop with an overhead crane and improve other areas, including parking, work bays and the electronic testing room, and the IT, electrical and mechanical systems.

Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) 3106 Helicopter Port

40000100

The Aviation Facility does not have a cover for aircrafts when they are parked in the hangar and not in use. The hangars have limited space to accommodate all Military Department aircraft. Weather elements, such as sun, heat, rain, snow and wind accelerate the wear and tear of the specific sheet metal of the aircraft. This project will construct a helicopter overhead cover that will protect and prolong aircrafts.
