After 50 years of service, the state highway department has retired the old vehicle storage building in Kittredge and is building a bigger and better replacement.
The Colorado Department of Transportation broke ground in November on a new vehicle storage shed at the maintenance yard on Highway 74 at Kerr Gulch Road. The previous structure was demolished in late September. A newer, brown metal building used to shield the sand supply will remain on site.
Completion of the vehicle garage depends on the weather, but the target is April or May.
