Interim Fire Station No. 7
Drawings & Site Plans
The Woodside Fire Protection District will be constructing Interim Fire Station 7 on the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory site. This temporary fire station will be in operation for approximately 18-months while the new Fire Station 7 is reconstructed at 3111 Woodside Road. This facility will not be open to the public. Access will be through a secure automated gate at the Sand Hill Road and Whiskey Hill Road intersection.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
It is our goal to have no negative impact on our surrounding community. The facility will not be visible from Sand Hill Road. However, what will be visible is the new secure automated gate to replace the existing service gate, new temporary traffic signs, and striping. Since this temporary station will not be open to the public, we do not expect any increase in traffic and do not anticipate any negative impacts to the community. Roads will remain open. Emergency responders will not sound their sirens or honk their horns on site and not until away from the intersection.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will there be an increase to traffic?
We do not expect any increase in traffic and do not anticipate any negative impacts to the community. The buildings will be fabricated off-site and the temporary fire station will not be open to the public.
What's the schedule?
Construction of the Temporary Fire Station 7 will start in the Fall of 2021 and will be completed by year end. The new Fire Station 7 on Woodside Road is scheduled to be completed Summer of 2022. At that time, the temporary fire station will be removed from the property.
Will I be able to see the Interim Fire Station from the road?
No. The buildings will not be visible from Sand Hill Road. The only noticeable changes will be a new automated access gate in the location of the existing gate, new striping at the intersection, and signage.
