Missile Project Gets Going

Land Survey Work Starts Next Week


June 10, 2021

The Kimball area will begin to see a little activity associated with the missile project.

Starting in the Pawnee Grasslands and then moving north, sub-contractors will begin the surveying process for the environmental impact statement, project officials told the Observer.

To have “no surprises,” Joseph Coslett and Terry Higgins from the 90th Missile Wing at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne said they were in Kimball on Monday to keep people informed.

Landowners in the areas affected have already received letters, but the 90th Missile Wing wants to keep the lines of communication open between landowners and the sub-contractors.

Coslett and Higgins told the Observer that beginning on June 14, a sub-contractor will start surveying land in the area for the missile project. They are taking soil samples, looking for insects, birds and wetlands.

They indicated that the entire surveying process is expected to be done by October, and then reports will be written.

This work is all preliminary. Construction is expected to follow in 2023 by Northrop Grumman, the aerospace and defense technology company.
