High Valley Transit’s new headquarters would also support that mission by creating an 11,000-square-foot maintenance shop, an 18,000-square-foot administrative building and a 31,000-square-foot bus barn. The project is estimated to cost more than $25 million. When it’s completed, it will house 24 full-size buses as well as parking for smaller vehicles, a fuel station and the possibility of employee housing. ( | David Jackson/Park Record )
