STEEL RISING FOR NEW LIMERICK TOWNSHIP GARAGE – It’s been about a month since Limerick supervisors and officials broke ground (inset at top) for the township’s new 22,000-square-foot public works facility at the municipal complex, 646 West Ridge Pike. Construction of the $2 million building designed by Gorski Engineering appeared well under way Friday (Aug. 22, 2014), with many of its steel skeletal components (above and below) already in place. Limerick houses a lot of equipment, Manager Daniel Kerr said, because as Montgomery County’s second-largest municipality it provides year-round maintenance to about 200 lane miles of road, with another 20 miles expected in a few years. The new building will provide efficient vehicle storage and repair areas, office space, and modern locker and temporary sleeping quarters for emergency situations, according to Board of Supervisors’ Chair Elaine DeWan.
