By May most of the new headquarters buildings at Fort Eustis will be completed, Grothe said. In June "advance parties" will move up to Newport News from Monroe.
Grothe said the move will begin in earnest after the Fourth of July weekend, going through the end of August.
"It's going to be about 200 a week, roughly 50 a day," he said.
He said by early September the goal is for all of the organizations that transfer from Monroe to be fully operational, "long before the BRAC deadline."
The BRAC process has entailed a large number of construction projects at Eustis to cope with the expansion. The new TRADOC headquarters is a five-story building. Grothe said about 90 percent of the project is completed. It's set to be finished in May.
Other projects include two new barracks buildings, a Joint Task Force Civil Support building and an aviation training facility.
Grothe said there had been "unprecedented investment" in Fort Eustis' infrastructure in the last few years amounting to $353 million in construction and design, with another $198 million planned by 2015.
