Plans for New Police, Fire Stations on Track
– August 7, 2014 12:00 pm
WOODBRIDGE, Va. – Plans for the construction of two new public safety facilities – a fire and rescue station and a police station – are still in the works.
Both separate buildings will be built at the corner of Prince William Parkway and Davis Ford Road in Woodbridge. Combined, the stations will cost $30.2 million.
A public meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Buckhall Volunteer Fire Department at 7190 Yates Ford Road just outside Manassas.
Here’s a statement from Prince William Supervisor Mike May, whose district the new public safety building will be located in:
Prince William County will construct this dual Police and Fire & Rescue complex near the intersection of the Prince William Parkway and Davis Ford Road to better serve the residents of Dale City, Lake Ridge, and the Davis Ford Corridor. While the project is still in the planning stages, this meeting is an opportunity to come learn more about the project and to answer any questions you may have.
The new stations will sit close to the Prince William County Government Center’s McCoart Building. The 15,000-square foot Bacon Race Fire Station will include four apparatus bays to house fire and rescue vehicles, a kitchen, sleeping quarters, and offices.
The 20,000-square foot Central District Police Station will house several divisions of the police department including patrol, criminal investigations, and special operations. The Office of the Chief of Police will be moved from the McCoart Building to the new station.
Construction of both facilities is slated to be complete in 2017.
