START Bus Barn Moves Forward

START Bus

There’s a lot of work to be done between now and when ground is broken in August for the new START bus barn in Jackson.  The Town and County elected gave the nod for the project to move ahead during their joint meeting Wednesday. START Director Michael Wackerly says between now and August 15th, plans for stage one of the project will be finalized. He says that includes completing the design drawings and going out to bid in a couple of months.  He says the agency hopes to award a contract in late July to get started on the project. The total project is expected to cost around $30-million, and while $9-million is available to start the project, Wackerly says it is to be built in stages as finances are available. He says contractors will be asked to bid separate quotes on separate components of the project; for example, the indoor storage for the busses which is a priority.  Then adjacent to that, the offices will be built adjacent the storage structure, and the third quote that will be sought will involve the building of a road to the facility. Wackerly says building the administrative offices as an addition to the storage portion of the facility rather than as part of the building, enables it to be pursued as a separate stage of the project. Final plans will be presented at future joint information meetings of the town and county.
