Work will be performed in Amarillo, Texas (35 percent); Arlington, Texas (35 percent); Fort Worth, Texas (21 percent); Philadelphia, Pa. (8 percent); and Seattle, Wash. (1 percent). Work is expected to be completed in December 2014. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
