RADCLIFF, Ky. (AP) — Construction is under way on the Radcliff Veterans Center, a nursing facility being built in a region that's home to Kentucky's largest concentration of veterans.

Gov. Steve Beshear toured the site on Wednesday.

The facility will provide 120 veterans with a private room and bath and family-style living room, dining room, kitchen and patio. A separate building will be used for recreation, physical therapy and other services.

It will be Kentucky's fourth such facility for elderly veterans.

Construction began in July and the facility is scheduled to open in June 2015. It is being paid for with a $21.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and $18.6 million from the state of Kentucky.

The U.S. Department of Defense donated 194 acres from Fort Knox for the facility.
