Construction Underway for South Metro’s New Fire Station #20
South Metro Fire Rescue is pleased to be moving forward with the new fire station (Station 20) in Highlands Ranch. This station, which is expected to be approximately 8,420 square feet, will be located on the corner of Wildcat Reserve Parkway and Summit View Parkway. This new station is a commitment that South Metro Fire Rescue made to Highlands Ranch as part of its inclusion into the District and will help reduce emergency response times to an area of Highlands Ranch that has experienced historically extended response times. South Metro is excited to provide a new level of service to the citizens of Highlands Ranch with this additional fire station.
The start of construction is now underway, with site work beginning late March 2020. The initial focus will be on the re-location of a portion of the existing trail near the station location, and the removal of 20,000 cu. yds. of dirt. The current construction schedule projects a completion date in December 2020. The contractor and sub-contractors currently anticipate no delays due to the supply chain interruptions for construction materials during this time as construction is considered an essential industry during the Public Health Order during the pandemic.
