Work continues of highway building

Meetings will be held Tuesday and Wednesday on the progress of the new Langlade County Highway Department building, which is attached to the east side of its current facilities on Arctic Street.

“We will be in during October,” Highway Commissioner Brian Braun said today.

The structure is a large truck storage and washing facility for the county that expands and replaces some aging portions of the longtime and busy complex.

Braun explained that the work this week is centering on installation of the large floor, which is further complicated because it is heated.

The new truck building will also have a fire sprinkler system which will extend in to the existing facilities. Earlier this year the project costwas estimated at $1.37 million.

“Efficiency is a big part of the project,” Braun said “We need to protect our equipment.”

The centerpiece is construction of a 11,760 square foot pre-engineered steel building to store the highway trucks and related equipment.

Braun explained that the existing garages and shop areas are now filled to overflowing with trucks, and that creates problems. The heavy duty equipment benefits from inside storage, especially during the winter months, but it makes it almost impossible to move around, much less work on equipment.

The new truck building will have six stalls, each capable of holding two trucks, along with a double wash bay and electrical upgrades.

The County Board has capped the overall budget at $1.5 million.
