On Tuesday, November 23rd, Mayor Patrick Madden visited the City's new Traffic and Facility Maintenance Building, currently under construction in the North Central neighborhood. Mayor Madden was joined by City Engineer Aaron Vera, Project Supervisor Todd Dickinson, and Allison Beagle, PMP, Senior Project Manager with Siemens Industries during the stop.
The city broke ground on the project in July 2021. When complete, the 10,000 square feet structure will house two Public Works departments, and features three 12 feet by 12 feet garage bay doors, indoor storage for vehicles, equipment, and office space available for staff in the building's rear. The new garage is replacing a decades-old building that was demolished in May 2021.
The new pre-engineered steel building will utilize LED lighting, modern HVAC systems, and other energy-efficient upgrades. The City of Troy has partnered with Siemens Industries to install energy-efficient LED lighting in the facility.
