Work at the site of the $3 million project on Pennsylvania Avenue began last spring with the demolition of a fire station that had been built in 1952.

Brian Rieber, who chairs the Apalachin Board of Fire Commissioners, said the structural steel for the new building was delivered last Friday. Workers on Monday started to place the steel beams into position.

Rieber said decorative concrete blocks and some additional steel will be delivered in coming weeks.

Although the project schedule has been slightly revised, Rieber said the station still is expected to be ready for use before next year. He said the facility could be operational as early as Thanksgiving or as late as the end of the year.
