ALBION – Contractors have built two 60- by 150-foot pole barns on West Academy Street for the Orleans County Highway Department.

The new facilities will allow the county to put vehicles, equipment and some materials inside year-round. It will better secure the county equipment, and also speed up time in deploying the vehicles during the winter after snow. County employees won’t have to brush off snow, for example.

This pole barn is currently empty but will be used to store equipment, vehicles and other materials.

Secor Building Solutions in Savannah NY submitted the lowest bid, $382,698, to build the two pole barns. The company is located near Syracuse.
