SUBASE New London: $320K results in $2.3M State investments to support new weapon platform

As a result of a $320K OEA Compatible Use Investment, the State of Connecticut invested more than $2.3M in land purchases and infrastructure projects that prevent or mitigate civilian encroachment of missions at SUBASE New London. Their effort included the purchase and demolition of a marina across the Thames River from the SUBASE that impaired the Navy’s ability to dredge a turning basin wide enough to accommodate new Block V Virginia-class submarines.  Efforts are presently underway to strategically locate future housing to reduce traffic congestion and improve workforce retention for the Navy and General Dynamics Electric Boat (EB) as EB ramps up to build the Columbia-class Ballistic Missile Submarines and the Virginia Payload Module.
