Upgrading Roads, Schools’ Curriculum Would Help Aberdeen
While commanders at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., are confident that the $1 billion worth of BRAC construction projects at the post will be finished by the Sept. 15 implementation deadline, officers there raised several outstanding concerns last week during a meeting with Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D).
For one, the Army has identified seven local intersections that need to be upgraded at a cost exceeding $100 million, reported Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Command public affairs.
The other major issue is the need for the local school system’s curriculum to support the proving ground’s needs. Officials have discussed broadening Harford County’s emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and bringing teachers to the installation for professional development.
