YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea — The Dragon Hill Lodge will get a new $1.3 million roof this year, a six-month project to begin in mid-August.

The construction will force the closure of the cul-de-sac area next to Sables Restaurant and the hotel’s back tower, according to Area II Support Activity officials. That means the only driving entrance and exit to the hotel’s front parking area will be from 8th Army Drive.

The project will replace the 31,000 square feet of tiles on the lodge’s room tower and annex, home to the Point gymnasium. The work is to begin Aug. 15 and is expected to finish in mid-December.

Krima Construction, a South Korean company, won the bid. The hotel was built in 1990 and a second tower was added in 2000.
