Construction of North Strabane Township’s new fire department substation is slated for completion this fall, after minor issues delayed the project’s original August end date.
The project is still on track, and North Strabane township manager Andy Walz said the fire department should be moved in and ready to respond from the new location in the third or fourth quarter of 2021.
The new building, located across from 84 Lumber’s Hardy Credit Co. along Route 519, replaces an old substation on Thomas Eighty-Four Road near Creekside Crossing.
“The station was very small,” said fire Chief Mark Grimm. “We knew years ago that we would have to either replace or expand that station with the growth of the Eighty Four area."
