One of twelve Atias ICBM launching sites for Dyess AFB will__be located near Winters, according to an announcement made Tuesday by the Air Force. Exact location of the firing site had not been made public, but Winters city officials said representatives of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Au: Force Ballistic Missile Division will arrive within a few days probably to work out plans with the city for water service to the site. The launching pad for the Winters vicinity is one of three added to the nine originally planned by the Air Force for this area. The other two additional sites will be near Albany and Oplin. No information was available this week on the size of the force required to man the sites. According to the announcement. Site No. 10 will be I14 miles south of Albany in Shackelford county on U. S. 283, Site No. 11 will be 25 miles southeast of Dyess near Oplin in Callahan County, and site No. 12 will be 31 miles southwest of Dyess near Winters. It is expected that personnel from the Army Corps of Engineers and officials of the Air Force will begin arriving in the Abilene area this week-end to begin work on final planning stages and obtaining land and bids for construction. About 150 men will be included in the total force, which will supervise and inspect construction during the two years of building before the sites are turned over to the Air Force. Construction is expected to begin in early June. Total cost for the original nine launching sites was said to be $44 million, and the additional sites would add about $15 million to the original figure.
