The Lakeshore TolTest JV, LLC in Detroit, MI recently won a $64.4 million firm-fixed-price contract to design and build a brigade garrison at “Deh Yak Ghazni”, Afghanistan. Work will be performed in Ghazni, Afghanistan, with an estimated completion date of Jan 30/13.

Bids were solicited through the Internet, with 8 bids received by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Afghanistan Engineer District in Kabul, Afghanistan (W5J9JE-11-C-0130) Deh Yak is a district about 30 km east of Ghazni city in Ghazni Province, which is located in eastern Afghanistan. The province has served as part of the trade route from Kabul to Kandahar for many centuries, and was recently discovered to have incredibly rich lithium deposits. Those discoveries will likely add to Ghazni’s interesting history. It was a thriving Buddhist center before its destruction by Muslim conquerors in 869 AD, and the area’s subsequent historic legacy still shapes it via the number of resident Hazaras among the Pashtun population. The Deh Yak district is majority Pashtun, however, with some ethnic Tajiks.
