New York- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, has awarded a $4.46 million

contract to Doyle Contracting of Pearl River, N.Y., for the construction of an Urban Assault Course at

the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The Urban Assault Course will help provide basic level training for individual Soldiers/squads and

platoons for building and room clearing. The project includes construction of simple wood structures to

simulate buildings, a large scale firing range, an underground tunnel system as well as support facilities

and roads.

“This Urban Assault Course will help ensure that Cadets at West Point are ready for the ever-changing

tactics of modern warfare,” said New York District Commander Col. John R. Boulé. “These new

facilities, combined with the other top of the line facilities at West Point, are key to providing the best

training and education possible for the Army’s future leaders.”

Construction on the Urban Assault Course is slated to begin this summer and be completed by fall
