Work will mainly be performed in Coatesville, Pa., Spring Grove, Ill., and Windsor Locks, Conn, and other locations across the U.S. The project is expected to be completed by Jan. 2018. Fiscal 2017 Navy shipbuilding and conversion funds of $21 million will be allocated at the time of award and will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.

The Virginia-class is expected to be the primary attack submarine for the U.S. Navy for decades to come. Th estimated cost for each Virginia-class submarine is $2.6 billion.
