WARNER ROBINS — A Pentagon spokeswoman confirms that the U.S. Army Reserve plans to build an $11.4 million training center in central Georgia.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that the Army Reserve will also locate a newly formed combat engineering company at the new facility, in the Warner Robins area.

Lt. Col. Maria Quon says the new unit will be a "multi-role bridge company."

Quon says that 185 reserve duty soldiers will train at least once a month at the facility. Also, a dozen soldiers will staff the facility full time.

She said the reserve unit should occupy the new center by January 2013, but the construction timeline hinges on approval of the federal budget.
