The Air National Guard base is intact and expanding to the land across the state highway. For base security reasons, the state route will be relocated north of the construction area and the base will take over the old state highway. A similar project is underway at nearby WPAFB to relocate SR 444.
A $17 million complex was recently completed for their use, and Ohio National Guard elements from Springfield and Kettering are also moving to the new complex.
