Forks Public Works Building Progressing

New public works facility, though, probably won't be completed by the end of the year.

Editor's Note -- This is the fourth in a series about Forks Township's new public works facility.

The structure on Newlins Mill Road is taking shape.

Since the summer, a monstrous football stadium-like structure has risen from the ground as Forks Township's new public works facility.

It's no wonder that this building is $1.5 million over its $4 million budget -- it looks like the stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play. We're talking state-of-the-art.

Patch.com took an exclusive tour with Public Works Director Mark Roberts reviewing the facility's construction over the summer.

(Photos of that work will be shown throughout the week.)

At a recent Forks Township Board of Supervisors meeting, Roberts provided an update.

There was talk that the facility could open in October or November, but Roberts said after the meeting that the structure won't be finished until sometime early next year.

"There's been lots of public works activity," Roberts said at the meeting.

He said that plumbing has been put in, the roof completed, sidewalks finished, drywall up and concrete poured for fuel pumps.

Roberts indicated that a waterproofing problem is being addressed.
