GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – Construction has started on a new Public Safety Center in Grapevine.

Grapevine citizens voted in favor of a new Public Safety Center in 2013 as a part of the $68 million bond proposal package.

This new state-of-the-art building will be located on Dallas Road, east of Target and will be home to the Police Department, Municipal Court, Fire Department Administration, Information Technology Department and Logistics.

This multi-level facility will have three different buildings on one campus totaling approximately 104,000 square feet.  The city says first responders will also benefit from enhanced technology allowing them to better assist Grapevine citizens.

The new Public Safety Center is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2017.
