The new salt storage and bus garage site exceeds the overall operations and facility requirements for both service facilities and opens the downtown area for economic redevelopment.

Hudson Salt Storage and Bus Garage

Environmental Design Group led the design team and assisted the City from conceptual design and needs assessment through bidding and construction, and was directly responsible for civil engineering, surveying, landscape architecture and environmental engineering.

The City of Hudson looked to relocate the Hudson School District’s bus garage and provide a salt storage facility for the City’s Service Department. The project consisted of the construction of an approximate 9,900-square-foot school bus garage which includes four pull-through service bays with service storage areas, office and restroom/locker-shower areas, service mezzanine storage area, meeting/break area for 72 occupants, dispatch area, training room, restrooms, and mechanical space. The project also included the construction of an approximate 9,800-square-foot salt storage facility to store approximately 4,000 tons of salt, 10,000 gallons of brine and includes a small single-person restroom and utility room, parking spaces, and circulation pavement.

Work also includes utility infrastructure, sanitary lift station, stormwater quality and quantity management basins, security fencing and gates, site lighting, and buffer landscaping. The project schedule was determined by the ecological permitting and mitigation of 4.5-acre wetland impacts.
