LANL plutonium facility doomedSeptember 30th, 2012 at 4:39 pm by Hawa Konte under Latest Posts
Plans for a massive new plutonium facility at the Los Alamos National Laboratory appear doomed.
The lab has already spent more than $400 million on designs but still there are no plans to actually begin building.
The project has been delayed for years.
The federal budget proposal, that begins Monday, cuts funding for the program.
Estimates to build the project sit between $3.7 billion and $5.8 billion.
A project manager says about $80 million has been sent to close out operations.
