(EDINBURGH) - The Indiana National Guard's Camp Atterbury is preparing for more than $75 million in new construction to add three new barracks, a dining hall and an expanded rail spur to accommodate bigger shipments to the post.

The new dormitory-style barracks will allow the post to train more military members and bring in large units more frequently. The barracks and a new dining hall will cost about $52 million.

Indiana Adjutant General Martin Umbarger tells the Daily Journal ( http://bit.ly/P5L9jD ) the post will spend $25 million on a rail spur for shipments of vehicles, equipment and gear to the base for training exercises.

He says the projects will allow the post about 30 miles south of Indianapolis to handle its new role as a major training and testing center.
