 CDC laboratory expansion project under way

Posted April 1, 2009

Construction began in February on a $14 million expansion project at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laboratories in Fort Collins, Colo.

The project will include biosafety level 2 and 3 laboratories, according to JE Dunn Construction, which is converting empty space in the CDC's existing facility into high-level biocontainment laboratories and offices.

The CDC conducts vectorborne disease research at the Fort Collins facility.

The project is scheduled for completion in January 2010.
