The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs says the project was delayed a bit because of "original escalated bids," but it was re-bid and is within budget.

The new two-story Michael J. Fitzmaurice State Veterans Home will have 100 beds — 52 with skilled nursing care and 48 for non-skilled individual living quarters.
