EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The Veterans administration says it is moving forward on choosing a site to build the long-awaited $40 million medical clinic serving the Eugene-Springfield area.

Kelli Witt, a VA real estate specialist, told The Register-Guard newspaper (http://bit.ly/n52Wku) she and other VA officials toured potential sites in July. She says the selection process will start to get moving in a few weeks.

Congress approved the clinic in 2009.

It is expected to employ 200 people and save people from having to travel to Roseburg for treatment.
