Construction on the 43,000-square foot building is slated to begin this year. The commissary, which will serve as a grocery store and trading post for the area's military personnel, will be located on county-owned land at the corner of Interstate 376 and University Boulevard.
The facility will replace the existing commissary in Oakdale.
The effort to bring the new commissary to Western Pennsylvania has been more than seven years in the making: In 2005, the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission targeted the Oakdale commissary for closure.
When completed the commissary will serve more than 160,000 military personnel in the tri-state region.
