FDA to Build $600 Million Campus

FDA to Build $600 Million Campus

ROCKVILLE, Md--By the year 2003, the FDA hopes to be settled into its new 539-acre home in Clarksburg, Md, a small farming community about 15 miles north of the agency's main Rockville headquarters.

The project should receive final approval in June after completion of an environmental impact study, and construction is scheduled to begin next year. More than 6,000 FDA workers, now scattered among dozens of sites, will move to the Clarksburg campus. Access will be from an existing interstate highway, but the new site will not be near public transportation.
