Late in the third quarter, we completed several of our planned capital projects at these new sites. The remaining projects we expect to undertake include the construction and opening of 3 truck service and repair facilities and a near total redevelopment of a large property in Indiana. We estimate that we will invest an additional $20 million in these projects, and that these investments will commence during the 2011 fourth quarter or early in 2012.During the third quarter, these new sites contributed to combine $4.5 million to our total gross margins. And today, we're not yet realizing the full benefit of the planned and completed improvements.
