Transfer station continues to progress

Staff writer

Work on the county transfer station — originally estimated at $1.87 million but now estimated at $2.02 million — continues to roll along with steel work now underway.

Steel workers Monday set support posts in concrete, worked to form a floor in a room where refuse will be dumped, added steps to a steel staircase leading down to the lower floor, and did other tasks to complete the inside of the building.

The construction company’s contract called the building to be done in 250 days. Construction began in March, but has been slowed by rain and mired by city power outages because the city’s electrical lines turned out to be located in different places than believed when building plans were made.

Project engineer Randy Purdue said the building should be finished by early December.

The building will be 80 by 75 feet when completed.
