All soldiers have left the Smoke Bomb Hill barracks at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, after a procedure that took nearly two months longer than expected, the 18th Airborne Corps said in a statement on Friday.

According to the statement, about 1,200 soldiers on the facility have been transferred to other dormitories or off-post into communal living. According to the statement, army authorities concluded that “the 50-year-old barracks reached the point of economic diminishing return.” After this summer’s inspection of the Smoke Bomb Hill barracks by Army and installation commanders, including Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston, a significant evacuation occurred.”Higher than average moisture levels” were discovered during the inspection, creating ideal mold growth conditions, as well as “quality of life concerns,” a Fort Bragg spokesperson told Army Times in an unsigned email. Project Volunteer Army built Smoke Bomb Hill barracks in the 1970s with the goal of improving living circumstances for the newly all-volunteer force in the years following the Vietnam War.
