DOT planning to replace its Brookfield repair facility

January 15, 2019

BROOKFIELD - The state Department of Transportation wants to replace what it calls a “functionally obsolete” repair facility on Federal Road.

DOT’s Office of Engineering is developing plans for the construction of a new repair facility on the site of the existing repair facility at the intersection of Routes 7 and 202.

The project involves the construction of a new building consisting of a 15,000 square-foot bay area and a 6,000 square-foot office area, and will include operational areas for vehicle repair, a materials storage stockroom, private office areas, and supporting office spaces.

The existing repair facility will be converted to cold storage, DOT said in a release.

Other improvements will include removal of a cold storage building, motor fuel island, and underground tanks, installation of motor fuel aboveground storage tanks, motor fuel island, new pavement where necessary, site drainage system improvements and connection to utilities.

The final design plans are expected to be finished in September.

“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,” DOT said in a release.

Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. Michael J. Strong, Project Manager, at (860) 594-3306 or by e-mail at michael.strong@ct.gov. Please make reference to the Brookfield Repair Facility.
