    Plans to build a new $2.6 million outpatient clinic for veterans in Burlington are moving forward.

    The new clinic on Lakeside Avenue will be nearly twice as large as the Colchester clinic and serve about 4,000 veterans.

    Its expected to be completed in early 2013.

    Sanders said the VA now serves about 8,600 veterans at clinics in Colchester, Brattleboro, Rutland, Bennington and Newport, providing primary care, specialty treatment and mental health services.
