A groundbreaking will be held this Thursday on an 18,000-square-foot police headquarters for the Essex Police Department, the Town of Essex announced Tuesday.
The ceremonial start of construction will begin at 10:30 a.m. at a former IBM site at 145 Maple Street. A bond sale to fund the new facility was approved by Essex voters in November 2012. Starting construction this week places project completion and occupancy in August 2014, the town announced in a press release.
