$8.6 million fed grant will enhance, enlarge State Veterans Cemetery in Middletown

Officials broke ground Tuesday at the State Veterans Cemetery on two projects totaling $8.6 million that are designed to expand and beautify the Bow Lane grounds. Construction on that portion of the project is estimated to be finished by February 2020. It is being paid for by a $3.18 million federal grant. Also, an expansion grant will allow for the addition of 2,000 vaults, repairs of the ground’s irrigation system and a new roadway that leads to the cemetery. That work, which will cost $5.45 million, is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
