More Retail Needed as Fort Knox Grows

Jun 9, 2011

Fort Knox will see millions of dollars in construction projects as the post continues to grow thanks to the Army's realignment process. Lt. Gen. Benjamin Freakley told a chamber of commerce audience that many of the improvements to date have been made in Elizabethtown. But he said he believes more development needs to take place closer to post, particularly in Radcliff. Freakley said the lack of high-end restaurants, shopping and specialty stores has caused soldiers to leave the area and travel to Louisville.
