The Prairie Construction team has begun construction on Gretna Fire Station South, the second station for the Gretna Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.
The new station will be located at Highway 6 and Capehart Road. The 40,000 square-foot, 2-story project will include a large classroom space and conference room, sleeping quarters for 12, a fitness area, kitchen and dining, laundry and office space, a training facility space and apparatus bays.
The project started with the county adding new paving and the addition of utilities added to the south side of Capehart Road, about a quarter mile west of Highway 6/31. The Prairie Construction team has completed the steel structure and the precast wall panels of the new station.
As the Gretna community continues to grow and expand, so does the need for vital fire and rescue services. Prairie Construction is proud to help meet these needs for the Gretna community. Our teams will work throughout the winter to meet a completion date of June 1, 2021.
