It appears that the US may be constructing a secret “super bunker” near the White House, the blog Vatfor reported citing collected reports and documents. The text below is based on the overview released by Vatfor:
The story of “Contract C-9568” begins back in 2002. In the federal district of Columbia, to implement a major federal contract, two construction companies – Clark Construction and Kiewit created two joint ventures, “Clark Kiewit III a Joint Venture” and “Clark/Kiewit C4ISR being a Joint Venture”, based in the Arlington area, right behind the Pentagon.
Clark is known for the construction of various military bases and federal buildings, although there are subways in its portfolio. And Kiewit just specializes in mines and metro. Although energy projects are also included in the portfolio.
The newly created Clark / Kiewit III has concluded with the US Navy contract number C-9568, which wasn’t added to any of the registries of the American military or federal contracts, until 2018.
Clark / Kiewit decided to vouch with the US Navy in court. The question was eventually settled with a settlement, but the case got to the court’s website.
There was, however, a subcontract – 02-C-9568 on the public procurement website. And it was concluded with the Private Security Company New Age Protection, which at least from 2005 to 2012 guarded certain objects under an agreement with this number. New Age Protection was created in 2003, general director is a former marine, the President is a former Pentagon official who has been involved in various special facilities and categorized rooms all his life.
Since 2002, secret construction has been on-going in Washington, undertaken by Clark and Kiewit, and it’s only reported in various complaints by residents to various news outlets.
This was taking place around the premises of the US Vice President at the time, and it is located on the Naval Observatory grounds. When journalists asked for a comment on the construction, the Navy admitted there was something happening, but no other information could be provided. It was claimed that a “utility assessment and upgrade” was taking place.
Google maps shows the following situation in 2002. It shows a hangar under which the mine is located, in which the above-mentioned underground construction is carried out:
In 2003, the underground construction finished, and the hanger moved to a new place, where it remained for 13 years. The Google maps image shows an island on the Potomac River, located directly opposite the Pentagon.
Activists of the national movement Save the Mall, protecting the national parks from destruction, soon came across this construction site. By the way, this island is a national park called East Potomac Park and you cannot build anything in it without going through a lot of procedures, including public hearings. But no such thing appears to have taken place.
The directorate of the national park told activists that the land was seized from them implicitly and nothing was explained, and then they were sent to the US Navy to get further comments, and they were assured that everything was in order: there was only a “utility assessment and upgrade” in the park, same as above in 2002.
Park defenders took a couple of photos of the construction site from the ground.
In all open sources, this site, by the way, was designated as the Clark / Kiewit utility project.
The third hangar appeared in 2008 at the midway point between the two previous ones. The location fell into a clearing next to the left wing of the White House. Former US President Barack Obama can be seen on the background of the hanger in 2008.
At first, journalists did not pay attention to it, but as soon as excavation work began outside of it, reports began surfacing about the secret construction in the White House. Vatfor tried to look at who the contractor was for the construction work, trying to see the logos on the vehicles the workers used, they were all hidden.
The White House did not deny the direction of construction, and even in the book “The White House under Obama” it was written that a “five-story bunker” was built underground.
Back in East Potomac Park, in 2015, the hangar was finally dismantled. A Google satellite image from the time showed how the hangar is being dismantled, and a freshly constructed building is already under it.
Following the completion of construction, a small house remained in the Naval Observatory, which can also be seen on Google maps.
In general, the construction of the system lasted a long 14 years and was completed in 2016. Considering that the USA does not experience significant problems with financing defense projects, such a huge construction period can only speak of how massive the project really must be.
If it was placed on a map, it should look something like this:
There also appears to be another facility that has a massive water intake, for an unclear purpose. It is located on Pentagon ground. There is an image on Google maps, as well as a photograph of the entrance:
The depth of the projects is unclear, but special objects were buried up to 150-200 meters back in the 1960s and that’s not impressive. There is also a sort of “magic number” when it comes to depth – 700 meters, which is the penetrating effect of nuclear munitions on special fortifications, according to various reports. And the depth is even less than the project of the so-called Deep Underground Command Center from the sixties, which was proposed to dig more than a kilometer.
There also appear to be attempts to remove all information regarding the project from the web, with only some pictures remaining accessible, such as a picture entitled “Underground Center.”
It is unclear if it has a nuclear power supply and anything else for the facility is unclear. Individuals who post on social media about the construction appear to have connections to the Navy such as Ronald Castro and Blake Swenson.
In conclusion, the object appears to have been built successfully and lark / Kiewit continue their work. For example, they won a tender for the construction of a civil subway in Washington and already plunged into a series of scandals related to the supply of low-quality materials, poor-quality work, failure to meet deadlines and so on.
Regardless, there is very little known about it, other than it likely being a massive underground construction and that it potentially has a nuclear power source.
