EPA Fortress Gets New Look
By Eddy Ball
NIEHS veterans with at least seven years service will remember well the old headquarters of the EPA at the corner of Alexander and NC 54. Prior to the construction of the new facility across the lake from NIEHS, the EPA building, fondly known as the "Fortress," was the RTP headquarters for the agency. When the new building opened, EPA employees at the Fortress and at the agency's Durham offices relocated to the new facility.
Workers on-site weren't certain about the ultimate fate of the property, but one thing is sure: the imposing edifice is undergoing some big changes.
