A new repair facility is being planned by the state Department of Transportation on the site of the existing repair facility on Federal Road in Brookfield. The existing building is functionally obsolete.
The DOT Office of Engineering is developing plans for the construction of a 15,000 square-foot bay area and a 6,000 square-foot office area. It will include operational areas for vehicle repair, a materials storage stockroom, private office areas, and supporting office spaces.
The existing repair facility will be converted to cold storage. Site improvements will be made as well, including removal of a cold storage building, motor fuel island, and underground tanks. Plans also called for installation of motor fuel aboveground storage tanks, motor fuel island, new pavement where necessary, site drainage system improvements, and connection to utilities.
The DOT is aiming to have designs done by September. The project will be state funded.
If there's enough interest an informational meeting will be held, but a formal public hearing is not planned at this point. Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. Michael J. Strong, Project Manager, at (860) 594-3306 or by e-mail at email@example.com and make reference to the Brookfield Repair Facility.
