After years of construction, when will chemical weapons be destroyed?

After years of design and construction, the plant that will destroy chemical weapons in Madison County now enters a long phase of testing to verify that its complex systems do what they’re supposed to. The $1.5 billion plant is one of the biggest and most expensive construction projects in Central Kentucky history, and its accompanying employment and payroll are also large. Employment at the end of the year was 958, and employment will reach a peak of 1,150 in a couple of years.
