AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine officials are set to award a bid for a project to demolish and replace the vacant former state Department of Transportation maintenance facility in Augusta.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2gabIYc ) officials recently interviewed the last of three developer/contractor teams that submitted proposals to acquire and raze the facility and replace it with an 89,000-square-foot office building that would be leased back to the state.

The facility has been vacant since October 2014, when the department moved its operations to a new facility.

Officials are seeking to replace the state Department of Health and Human Services’s office and provide office space for some Department of Administrative and Financial Services workers.

Officials hope to choose a firm for the project within the next three weeks.
