HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. -- Hedgesville Volunteer Fire Co. Chief Mike Nichols said this week he hopes the department can move into its new station on Hedgesville Road by the end of the year.
The $3.2 million project was scheduled to be completed by Monday, but 17 days of weather-related delays held up the completion, Nichols said.
"We're hoping to be in there in the next few weeks," Nichols said.
An open house and dedication will not be held until the department is completely settled in the new pre-engineered metal building at 4217 Hedgesville Road, Nichols said.
Among the most significant work left to be done is the application of a non-skid sealant on the floor that will protect it from the wear and tear of emergency vehicles, Nichols said.
