The Connecticut Department of Transportation is Developing Plans for the Construction of a New Maintenance and Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Facility at Brainard Airport
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportationís (Department) Office of Engineering is developing plans for the construction of a new maintenance and aircraft rescue and firefighting facility at Brainard Airport on Maxim Road in Hartford.  The purpose of this project is to store and protect maintenance and firefighting equipment required for airport operations as well as to provide bunk rooms for airport maintenance and firefighting personnel.
 

It is the Department's policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken.  It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the projects development.  If there is adequate interest, an informational meeting will be conducted.  At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary. 

 

The project involves the construction of an 8,000 square foot single-story steel-framed building with masonry and metal siding.  Site improvements to support the new building will also be performed, including new natural gas and domestic water utility services from the existing building.

 

The present schedule indicates that final design plans will be available in March 2012.  The project will be federal/state funded.

 

Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting the Manager of State Design, Mr. Scott A. Hill, (860) 594-3272 or by e-mail at scott.hill@ct.gov.  Please make reference to Project No. 63-637.
