WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is expected to unveil a long-awaited plan this week outlining how it would close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, despite fierce resistance in Congress to President Barack Obama's push to shutter the facility, officials say.

The plan would have four sections, one detailing potential US alternatives for detainees, including the Centennial Correctional Facility in Colorado, one of the more promising locations, one US official said.

A small Defense Department team has surveyed facilities including the Consolidated Naval Brig in South Carolina and the Federal Correctional Complex in Florence, Colorado, the Pentagon has said.

It also examined two facilities at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas - the US Disciplinary Barracks and Midwest Joint Regional Corrections Facility.
