Although work has been in progress at the former highway shop on Sturgeon Bay’s 14th Avenue since late winter, the official groundbreaking for Door County’s new senior center and emergency services building will take place this Tuesday. De Pere-based IEI Contractors was chosen to work on the project back in January by the Door County Board with an estimated bid of $8.1 million, which was $900,000 under budget. With some interior work being done over the winter months and the EMS headquarters beginning construction this spring, Door County Administrator Ken Pabich told DoorCountyDailyNews.com earlier this year that he is hopeful the project stays on schedule.
The groundbreaking is scheduled to take place at 11:30 a.m. and is part of the Door County Board of Supervisors meeting agenda.
