Abstract : In July 1991 the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Woodbridge Research Facility (WRF), Woodbridge, Virginia, was recommended for closure by 1991 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC 91). The WRF officially closed on 16 September 1994. No property has yet been disposed at the WRF. Public Law 103-307 was signed by the President of the United States on 23 August 1994. This law mandated the transfer of the entire installation from the U.S. Army to the Department of the Interior (DOI). As of July 1995, negotiations of the terms of the property transfer are in progress. A property transfer date has not yet been announced. It has been determined that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), an organization within the DOI, will designate the property as a component of the National Wildlife Refuge system. Representatives of the USFWS have announced that the main compound area at the WRF will be utilized for administrative and educational purposes. The remainder of the installation is to be maintained as habitat for the wildlife and flora at the WRF.
