Earth Work Begins for New Stillwater Fire Station; Ground Breaking Set for Aug. 22

If you have travelled along County Road 12 recently, you’ve probably noticed that Earth work has begun on the new Stillwater Fire Station. Soon, Earth work will also begin for the new Armory.

As construction activity ramps up for the $7.3 million fire station, all heavy equipment and material deliveries will access the site via County Road 12 (Myrtle Street) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Construction crews for the Armory project will access the job site via Boutwell Road.

Two years ago, former City Council member Jim Roush expressed concern about the use of Boutwell Road for construction traffic, but city staff believes the concern of neighbors was large equipment accessing the site through their neighborhood, Stillwater Community Development Director Bill Turnblad said.

“That will not happen,” Turnblad said. “It will be construction workers coming to work.”

The official ground breaking for the Armory and Fire Station Project is set for 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 22.
