Bethel’s police station opened three years ago. With leaking fixed, the project is nearing completion

It’s been three years since the opening of the new police headquarters on Judd Avenue, and the town is finally moving onto the final phase of its police station project. A water leak issue in the new station’s firing range had been stalling the project’s completion, but First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker said this week that the problem has finally been fixed. Following a year-and-a-half review with Downes Construction and its subcontractor, Knickerbocker said the construction company “successfully remediated the problem” by applying a waterproof coating to the outside of the wall last fall. Completing the firing range won’t be a simple task, which is why the Board of Selectmen voted Tuesday to retain Geralyn Hoerauf from project management and consulting firm STV to manage and coordinate the final phase of the project.
