Construction has begun on Route 17 state building
NEW HAVEN — Workers from Wright Construction Company Inc. are spending the winter in New Haven constructing a new Vermont Agency of Transportation maintenance facility in New Haven. Construction began in late 2018 and is expected to continue through May 2019.
The 8,400-square-foot, six-bay facility off Route 17 just east of Route 7 will be home to the District 5 maintenance crew and replace the aging five-bay facility currently in use.
The $1.2 million facility consists of a structural steel frame with wood stud infill, membrane roofing and radiant floor heat.
Wright Construction is no stranger to this type of project. This will be the third building for VTrans; it previously constructed new facilities in Wilmington and Chester.
“It’s not often that we get to build the same building three times. With this being our third go around we know exactly what to do and how best to complete the project with a tight schedule and seamless project completion,” said Joseph Poston, CFO of Mount Holly-based Wright Construction.
