AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence has invited the public to the Signal Towers memorialization ceremony.

The ceremony will take place in the middle court at the tower base at 3 p.m. Friday. It will also be live-streamed on on Facebook.

Officials say the landmark will be demolished in phases over several months and replaced by a new headquarters facility. This is one step leading to what will be known as the Fort Gordon Cyber Campus.

The new college-like campus will include modern classrooms, powerful heating and air, and robust communications capabilities. The project is set to be complete in 2033.

The estimated cost is $924 million and will include four new buildings, eight modernized facilities, and the demolition of 10 buildings.
