Work on the new town garage along Blackville Road (Route 109) in Washington Depot is on schedule.

The frame and sides of the building are now in place.

An 8,400-square-foot structure has been attached to the existing 4,000-square-foot structure that remained on the site following a May 2012 fire.

The blaze destroyed much of the garage and the town highway crew's fleet.

Construction of the new garage is being done by PDS Construction & Engineering of Bloomfield.

The cost of the new 12,400-square-foot garage is estimated to be $1.5 million, to be paid by the town's insurance.
