FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Fresno County leaders and the Sheriff’s Office held a ceremony Monday morning to break ground on a new Area 2 substation.
The facility will be located between Belmont and Harvey avenues.
The new facility will serve as a hub for patrol briefings, community meetings and a storage location for specialty unit vehicles and equipment that are deployed during emergency situations, according to officials.
The new complex will replace the current Area 2 substation located on Shields Avenue, just east of Clovis Avenue.
The total cost of the project is estimated to be $14 million.
The estimated date of completion is August 2021.
