Delaware County's Tri-Township Fire Station: Planned move due to Point widening project
Wednesday, January 27, 2021
The Tri-Township Fire Station, which has sat at 495 Sunbury Road since 1957, is going to move.
It won't travel far, though.
The Delaware County commissioners on Dec. 21 approved a quitclaim deed transfer of 2.2 acres to the Tri-Township Board of Fire District Trustees. The Brown Township site will be the county's Byxbe Campus, at the former Delaware Area Career Center at 1610 state Route 521.
The new station's site is just off Bowtown Road, less than a mile to the east of the current station.
Tri-Township Fire Station Chief Troy Morris said the move is motivated largely by the city of Delaware's plan to widen the "Point" intersection of East William Street and East Central Avenue to four lanes under a railroad bridge. The fire station sits adjacent to the Point.
