According to a report from The Las Cruces Bulletin, Las Cruces, New Mexico, City Public Works Department Director David Sedillo gave an update on several city projects currently in the planning stages or under construction, one of those being the new Fire Station No. 3.
The Las Cruces Fire Department’s (LCFD’s) Fire Station No. 3 will cost $6.2 million to build and be adjacent to the existing Fire Station No. 3 at 390 N. Valley Drive.
Construction began on January 20 and should be completed this year. The existing Fire Station No. 3 was built in 1967 and is experiencing major structural problems. The station is the busiest single-unit station in Las Cruces and is now too small to add a second unit. It also lacks the capacity to address the growing population the station serves on the Las Cruces’s west side.
