The contract is part of the European Reassurance Initiative, to increase the presence of Pentagon in Europe for security purposes. The U.S. initiated the program in 2014 after Russia's annexation of the Crimean Peninsula.
The contract was awarded following an online auction with six bidders. The deadline to complete the work is September 2020.
Another ten infrastructure projects were inaugurated at the Kogalniceanu, Romania, base in July, with $4.6 million European Reassurance Initiative funds.
