Breaking Ground For Disabled Veterans

Crews have broken ground on the first phase of a new western Indiana housing project designed specifically to house the region’s homeless, disabled veterans. Contractor Richard Jenkins tells the Tribune-Star that construction will begin within 10 days of Tuesday’s groundbreaking in Terre Haute and should be completed in time for occupancy to begin this fall. The $687,000 project being developed by United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley will erect three duplexes, each having two two-bedroom apartments for a total of six units. A fourth duplex unit is also planned for the site, but will not be constructed until this first phase of development.
