The federal government awarded a final construction contract Friday to complete an over-budget veterans medical center outside Denver by January 2018.
The contract authorizes builder Kiewit-Turner to spend about $571 million more to finish the facility, on top of nearly $1.1 billion already spent.
Congress reluctantly approved up to $625 million in additional spending last month. The money is to come from other accounts within the Veterans Affairs Department budget.
