(Chambersburg) -- Workers at midstate military installations who've seen their weeks shortened by furloughs are getting ready to return to full-time work.
Roughly 3,000 Defense Logistics Agency employees in Fairview Township, York County will take their last of six furlough days Friday.
In Franklin County, about 2,400 Letterkenny Army Depot workers are also marking the end of their furlough time.
Letterkenny spokeswoman Lindsay Bryant says work on items like missile systems, vehicles and generators has been adjusted while the workforce took the mandatory time off.
"The work force is excited to be back and looking forward to going back to normal operations and being able to accomplish their work load in a five day week," Bryant says.
Many Army technicians at Fort Indiantown Gap in Lebanon County have already taken their final furlough day this week, according to a spokesman.
Some 700 employees at Carlisle Barracks and Army War College in Cumberland County have also been affected by the unpaid time off.
Naval Support Activity Mechanicsburg did not respond to witf's requests for information about furloughs.
