Work to build a uranium processing facility at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., could cost up to $6.5 billion, which would make it the state's largest construction project since the first Oak Ridge nuclear plant was built in 1943, according to this article. Local businesses will benefit from the project as it is "going to be huge" and spur business growth, said Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn. The facility is expected to be operational by 2025.
