Work included demolishing 6 obsolete active vehicle barriers, installing 6 new passive vehicle barriers and 2635’ of passive vehicle barrier, installing a new Visitors’ Control Center parking lot, adjusting the perimeter fenceline, and demolishing existing parking lots.
Scope of work: This project increases physical security measures at the main gate (ACP 2) at Fort McCoy, WI, by upgrading active and passive vehicle barriers (AVB/PVB), reconfiguring the parking lot, and improving overall site conditions.
