Editor's note: This article has been corrected to attribute the cost of the new Spring Fire Department's Station 72 to the correct source.

Early construction began Jan. 30 on a remodel of the Spring Fire Department’s Station 72, according to an April 8 email from Communications Director Tracee Evans. The $6.6 million project includes tearing down the old station—which was completed in late December through Jan. 10—and building a new almost 12,000-square-foot station from scratch, according to a post about the station on the SFD’s website.

According to the SFD’s post, the new Station 72 will be almost double the size of the existing station and will feature:“The current station was built a couple of decades ago for a volunteer fire department, and while renovated to house full-time firefighters, it does not meet the aesthetic of the community or its needs any longer,” the post reads.

The station was originally built in the 1970s and was located just north of the current station, according to the post.
