The Department of Transportation is building an automated, round-the-clock fueling station for state and other vehicles directly behind the Havenwood-Heritage Heights retirement home

The Executive Council approved a nearly $760,000 contract with Stephens-Marquis Associates Inc. of Merrimack to build the facility near the intersection of Hazen and East Side drives. When it opens this fall, the facility will replace two existing fuel stations in Concord, a Department of Safety station and a DOT-run facility.

The new station will have two islands, each containing two gasoline dispensers and two diesel fuel dispensers, under an LED-lit canopy, according to Ronald Grandmaison, a DOT project manager. It's part of a statewide network of stations that can be used by state and municipal vehicles as well as vehicles owned by nonprofit groups.

The gas and diesel pumps will be removed from the current Stickney Avenue station, but a compressed natural gas pump will remain there for now, said William Jannelle, DOT's director of operations. He said the CNG pump could move to Hazen Drive in the future.
