  Procter & Gamble plans to construct its new manufacturing plant in Berkeley County in two phases.

The majority of construction will be completed in the first phase. Construction is expected to begin in October.

The Journal reports that Procter & Gamble outlined the project in site and development plans filed with the Berkeley County Planning Department.

The first phase of construction will include the plant and nearly 2,200 parking spaces.

The Berkeley County Planning Commission has scheduled a May 4 public hearing on the project.

Procter & Gamble announced in February that it plans to invest $500 million in the project.
