CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — The state has authorized a contractor to begin work on a $25 million office building in downtown Clarksburg.
The General Services Division issued a notice to proceed with the project on Tuesday to Mascaro Construction of Pittsburgh. The notice says the deadline to complete the project is Dec. 6, 2015.
City manager Martin Howe tells The Exponent Telegram (http://bit.ly/1jdO5vh ) that city officials are eager for the project to begin.
About 180 employees from six state agencies will work in the four-story, 84,000-square-foot building. The agencies include the Division of Motor Vehicles, Department of Health and Human Resources, Division of Rehabilitation Services, WorkForce West Virginia, Auditor's Office and the Tax Department.
The building will be constructed at the site of the state's old office building, which was razed in 2012.
