County and school officials joined representatives from New Mexico’s Congressional Delegation, contractor Hensel Phelps, consultants with WH Pacific and other entities in celebrating the official ground-breaking for the county-owned Airport Basin Site Friday morning.

The ceremony took place behind the RV Park on East Road. The site is slated to become the new location for Los Alamos County’s and Los Alamos Public Schools’ warehouses, shops, fleet and bus barns, and other facilities in early 2010.

The new facilities will replace the decrepit buildings at the county’s and schools’ annex at 901 Trinity Drive.

Los Alamos County Council Chair Jim Hall told the crowd of nearly 100 that first and foremost, the project will give county and school employees safe, efficient and modern facilities in which to work.

“If any of you have visited the shops and warehouses over at the Trinity Site, you know that they are truly in terrible condition,” Hall said. “This is a project that has been long overdue for both entities, and today’s event is the culmination of thousands of hours of work by dozens of individuals at the county and the schools.”
