Current Activity

Posted Monday, May 20

Construction for this project is underway. 

Stormwater runoff devices have been installed as well as the foundation and underground plumbing/electrical. Right now, the contractor is doing concrete, steel, and masonry work for the fire station. Crews have also started putting in lines/pipes for plumbing, electrical, and mechanical work. 

Any unsuitable soil on the property has been replaced. Unsuitable soil can be found after an old building is demolished/when construction on a site begins. Removing the soil did cause a delay with the project. Construction is now expected to be done in the fall instead of this spring.

Fire Station 6 is currently closed and is temporarily relocated to Fire Station 5 at 300 Oberlin Road. The Emergency Communication Center has adjusted the dispatch for all surrounding fire companies and no impacts for fire protection are expected. 

If you have any questions about this project, contact Aaron Hair at 919-996-5575.


The purpose of this project is to demolish and build a new fire station at 2601 Fairview Road. The new fire station will be 14,990 square feet and will consist of two equipment bays. Work for this project includes clearing and grading the current site; filling and backfilling the worksite; connecting utilities; putting in an asphalt parking area; and creating reinforced concrete "fire truck aprons" or bases and sidewalks around the station.

Renovations to the fire station include structural, electrical, interior, and landscaping work.
