After months of preparation, construction is underway at Leadville/Lake County Fire-Rescue’s Station Two. The fire station is being built on a 45-acre lot off County Road 10, between Leadville and Twin Lakes, and will serve a variety of emergency response agencies.
Construction crews poured concrete on Monday, following delays caused by a failed inspection and unbudgeted infrastructure costs.
Stakeholders recently learned that LLCFR must build a regulator station in order to connect with Xcel Energy’s high-pressure gas line along C.R. 10. About $40,000 was originally budgeted for energy infrastructure costs; gas and electric are now set to cost LLCFR over $115,000.
