The new Transportation Building has been occupied by the District and is fully operational! Top-coating, striping and parking space numbering has been completed at the north side of the parking area, allowing busses to return on-site, and the remaining paving work continues toward August completion. Additional radiant heating will also be added under the west sidewalk to help manage ice and snow during the winter months. The fuel island fire suppression system has been tested and the final components of the electrical system are being installed.
The demolition and removal of the former transportation facility are also complete. Upon its removal, the area was excavated to remove unsuitable soils and replaced with engineered stone to support the new parking area. Two underground old oil tanks and an oil separator that were no longer in use were also unearthed and fully removed. Under the supervision of an environmental engineer and the DEC, the removal site was reviewed and remediated for contaminants, and then filled with engineered stone in preparation for the new asphalt parking area. All work is on schedule for completion at the end of this month!
