NNDOT Vehicle Maintenance Facility

This is one of two new maintenance facilities planned to be the prototype for NNDOT's planned expansion of maintenance facilities for each region served within the Navajo Nation. This facility provides an administrative area with staff offices, open work area, copy center, a meeting room planned for community use, locker facilities and a sleeping dorm, to provide crews stranded during bad weather. The maintenance area includes parts storage, one standard size vehicle bay, two oversize vehicle bays and one drive through oversize bay. The maintenance area includes an oil and lube pit designed for the large road maintenance vehicles, a vehicle lift, jib crane for handling heavy engine parts, a central lube/oil/air system and individual vehicle exhaust systems for each work bay.

Site design provides maneuvering area for the oversize maintenance vehicles and careful separation of circulation for private small vehicles from the large service trucks. Parking is provided for thirty privately owned vehicles. The site is master planned to provide space for future buildings and material lay down areas. An on site waste treatment system is included. The site was developed on raw land provided by the Dilkon community. Off site work included extension of a road through the neighboring BIA roadyard and public water line extension to the existing service. Teamwork was required with NTUA to accomplish these utility extensions.
