The new facility is a 24,560 square foot, two-story facility on a 1.36 acre sloping site with over 25 feet of grade change. The maintenance facility sits at the same level as the yard track at the lower end of the site with the operations on an upper level with direct access to grade at the upper level. The facility will include vehicle repair, cleaning facilities, parts storage, operations/driver facilities and offices. The project is designed to be highly sustainable, pursuing LEED Gold certification.
