New Macon-Bibb County Fire Station Project On Track
Stafford Builders construction crews are on track to complete Bibb County Fire Station #110 by this fall. The addition of the new Heath Road station will provide more rapid response times and expanded fire coverage for homes and businesses in the area, and is expected to also help lower insurance rates for those located within a 1.5 to 5-mile radius.
The new station will house more than a dozen firemen and is one of three fire departments to be funded by a 1% special purpose local-option sales tax (SPLOST) approved by voters in 2011. The $1.65 million project, located at 2930 Heath Road, will service the western part of the county and is part of strategic plan to improve public safety.
