 INDOT Breaks Ground at Cambridge City

October 31, 2007 - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) broke ground Monday for construction of a new sub-district operations center to be built on 15 acres at the northeast quadrant of U.S. Highway 40 and State Road 1. Brandye Hendrickson, the INDOT Greenfield District deputy commissioner, officiated over the ceremonial event as Cambridge City officials, INDOT employees and personnel involved with constructing the facilities looked on.

Earth movers stood ready just beyond the “ceremonial shovels,” prepared to reshape the landscape for a new 27,025 sq. ft. office and garage structure. The garage area will house six truck bays for the sub-district and two separate bays for the local unit. In addition, there will be a jumbo wash bay fitted with a cat walk and an underbody wash. Behind the main building, a separate 9,600 sq. ft. facility will be built for storing INDOT trucks and equipment. Future construction will include a prototypical salt storage building.

The 3D Company of Muncie was awarded the construction contract on a $6,465,000 bid. Work is to be completed within 14 months.

The current subdistrict operations center at Centerville was built in 1935 for a cost of $30,840. Its three bays and undersized doors are no longer adequate for today’s larger trucks and expanded and scope of operation. The sub-district is responsible for approximately 1000 lane miles across a number of east-central Indiana counties: Fayette, Henry, Union, Wayne and part of Randolph.
