On June the 15th 2019, the City of Davenport Florida broke ground on the construction of Fire Station No. 2, a building designed by Parlier + Crews Architects. The structure will be a much needed addition to the city’s main Fire Station. It will be located on the current Public Works property which is on the west side of the existing rail line that runs through the town. With the main station on the east side of the tracks and with the large amount of growth that Davenport is experiencing, it was determined that having the new Fire Station would bring a new level of safety to the west side residents in the event of an emergency while the rail line is occupied by a long freight train blocking road crossings. The new building is designed to be expanded in the future. Construction services are being performed by Mid-South Contractors and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
