Anyone have any clue what the heck the "top secret" construction in Morehead is?

Before anyone jumps in and starts talking about the Super-WallyWorld going in, I know that... it's being put in up by the high school....

but between the Morehead exit on I-64 and before you actually get to downtown.. they are blowing up the mountain and building something there. When asking locals, they all say they have heard many rumours but no-one really knows. They know it's all hush-hush for some reason and that a ton-o-money is being spent to actually raze the mountain for the construction....

I vaguely remember hearing in WV that they were going to open a new federal facility (maybe an FBI center?), but not sure when/where I heard that. Has anyone else heard?

I know there is also some type of research center going in off I-64 somewhere between Ashland and Mt. Sterling as well, but don't know the particulars on that one either.

Just curious if anyone else out there has heard what the heck they are building in my town! I hate the thought of anything going in here... Usually it doesn't mean more jobs for the locals, especially if it's federal... all that usually means is that more people will be re-locating here and building up the town population... unfortunately that includes traffic, crime, pollution, etc. Bah humbug.. I'm mad now..

Default New construction in Morehead

I've heard through a friend that there is a new VA hospital coming to Morehead. This could possibly be the site.

That would be one thing I would LOVE to see go in there. We need more VA hospitals and I could use one that's closer. As it is now, I have to go to Lexington or Huntington, if I want to use my free medical with the VA.
I know if they did put a VA hospital in, it would benefit a whole lot of people who drive hours to get to a VA and most are elderly, disabled, or low income.
