Bedrock Concrete LLC is proud to announce that the City of Overland Park has broken ground on the reconstruction of Fire Station 41. The new facility will be built on the site of the recently-demolished fire station located at 7550 W. 75th Street, and is set to open in the summer of 2024.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held on Wednesday, March 29, and was attended by Mayor Curt Skoog, City Manager Lori Curtis Luther, Fire Chief Bryan Dehner, Overland Park Fire Department staff, as well as city and county officials. Mayor Skoog spoke to attendees about the significance of the new fire station and its impact on the community.
The new Fire Station 41 will incorporate best design practices to ensure the safety and health of the staff, with additional space and facilities between equipment and living spaces to prevent contamination. The facility will feature individual, gender-inclusive living quarters and restrooms, new decontamination areas, and an extended driveway with two back-in truck bays and two drive-through truck bays to allow for easy access to and from the station.
Prior to the demolition of the original fire station, the City renovated the decommissioned Marty Pool House to use as a temporary fire station during construction. This ensures that fire crews can still provide the same level of responsiveness to emergency calls within the district.
Bedrock Concrete LLC is proud to be a part of the team that will bring this vital new facility to the community. For more details on the project, please visit the opkansas.org website.
