(Harrisburg) -- Bidding will soon close on more than a dozen surplus state properties that hit the auction block this summer.

Department of General Services spokesman Troy Thompson says the commonwealth has already wrapped up the bidding on the former Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute building in Philadelphia.

“Another list of eleven properties, armories, and a PennDOT maintenance facility will close between November the fourth and December the fourth, 2013,” he says.

The PennDOT maintenance facility Thompson referenced is located in Cumberland County. The historic Lancaster and Waynesboro armories are also among the properties up for sale.

Thompson says the state has sold 41 surplus properties since 2011, generating nearly $32 million.

Details on the properties and the bidding process are posted online.
