KODIAK (AP) — A groundbreaking ceremony is planned this week for additional Coast Guard housing on base in Kodiak.

The Coast Guard says the new construction will provide 20 additional housing units. More than 1,000 Guard members live and work on base.

The commandant of the Coast Guard, Adm. Paul Zukunft, and U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski are scheduled to attend the ceremony Thursday.
