Yes, there is a big technology park that is going in by I-185. Companies that are being recruited are military contractors.

Benning Technology Park: - Business Technology Park in Fort Benning, GA near Columbus GA

I'm a contractor that work with IT in Fort Benning, and the construction outside and inside of Ft. Benning, in my understanding, is to prepare for the arrival of 25k, or is it 35k troops expected to arrive from Fort Knox.

Welcome to the forum. The tech park is for military contracting companies. Will be interesting to see what locates there.

Fascinating to imagine what the impact all those new people will have on this area... we're in for quite a ride, possibly, folks!

I mean that in a good way... we all keep our fingers crossed, no doubt!

They should turn I-185 toward the Ft. Benning construction area and extend it into Florida. That way Columbus wont be a dead end.

Think there are plans to build a spec 100,000 sq. ft. building. Until major tenants are lined up, I doubt anything will happen to be honest.
