Leaders said soldiers would be relocated from 10 to 12 barracks, which were built in the 1970s, because the barracks did not meet today's standards for HVAC. Army leaders said the relocation would be a "deliberate, phased approach."

Fort Bragg did not say when the relocation would begin or where soldiers would be housed.
