(Marinette, WI)  —  Construction of the U-S-S Constellation frigate is scheduled to begin at the end of this month.  The U-S Navy just awarded a 39-million dollar contract modification to Fincantieri Marinette Marine.  W-L-U-K/T-V reports that means the total value of the contract awarded two years ago for nine additional Constellation-class Frigates is about five-and-a-half-billion dollars.  The majority of the work on the project is to be done in Marinette.
