SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Federal, local and state officials have broken ground on the $56 million Cache Valley Transit District (CVTD) Administration and Maintenance Facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The new facility, located on nearly nine acres at 3021 North 300 West in North Logan was designed by Stantec Architecture and is being built by Big-D Construction. The facility will be approximately 110,000 square feet and include maintenance bays, vehicle wash areas, enclosed bus storage, onsite fuelling and administrative offices.
The facility is scheduled for completion by November 2024 and is part of a strategic plan implemented 12 years ago by the CVTD. The structure is designed to accommodate CVTD’s projected future growth over the next 25 years, a release stated.
“We’re really excited to be working with Cache Valley to bring this project to life and to be part of something that’s going to benefit the community,” Big-D Construction project director Brian Murphy said in a statement. “Having a new facility that meets their growing needs and provides a safe working environment for district employees is going to be a game changer.”
“This facility positions the district to meet the needs of a county projected to grow by 54 per cent or 70,000 residents by 2050. Additionally, it allows the district to be flexible in its service delivery and embrace electric vehicles in the future,” CVTD CEO and general manager Todd Beutler added.
In 2022 CVTD competed for and received a Federal Transit Administration discretionary grant from the Bus and Bus Facilities program and “the strategically designed facility will also allow CVTD to use new transit methods that will help ease congestion, better air quality, and improve the quality of life of Cache Valley residents,” the release stated.
