Design will start this year followed by the bidding and construction processes.
Fire Station No. 8 will be built near the intersection of Colorado Boulevard and Brinker Road to serve the growing areas in southeast Denton, businesses in the medical district, and areas near I-35E, Mayhill Road, and State School Road. The new station will be an 8,500-square-foot station with space for six firefighters. It will also be the home of a new fire engine, Engine 8. Medic 8, already in service, will move from its temporary location at Medical City Denton, to the new station. Design will start in early 2019, with a planned in-service date of late fall 2020.
