Rebuilding of the Pentagon fire station destroyed during the 9/11 attacks is finally building traction and might be moving to the design phase after more than two decades, according to a report published by NBC Washington 4.
According to the television report, for the last 20 years, firefighters have had to use a temporary trailer facility for the fire station and a helipad tower that doesn’t meet national firefighter standards, according to the report.
According to the television station, the process of rebuilding the facility has been delayed several times due to unanticipated cost increases.
The new timetable for the work on the new station suggest construction will start next month with completion set for 2023, according to the television station report.
The project which is still in design phase was funded by an act of Congress in 2019, the station reported.
