Washington D.C. Loss Could Be R.I. Arsenal's Gain

Updated:

More jobs could be coming to the Rock Island Arsenal, after another command closed this weekend.

The Arsenal could see up to 87 employees relocated from Army Contracting Command in the Washington D.C. Area.

The Contracting Command closed for good on Sunday, July 21, 2013, saving the Army about $13 million per year.

The closure could mean four new major customers for the Rock Island Arsenal.
