Hammond Salt Barn Ready For Shipment


HAMMOND – Three months after a wind storm blew the roof off the town’s new salt and sand barn, the town is ready for it to house 80,000 tons of sand and salt from the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority.

The building’s roof blew off during a wind storm on Jan 18, just months after it was built.

The fabric for the barn’s roof was purchased from Calhoun Superstructures, Canada, by Akins Construction, Ogdensburg, which provided the labor on the project.

A warranty for the materials covered the cost of the fabric, and Akins Construction installed the new roof within two weeks of the incident at no cost to the town.

“Once we learned the warranty would cover the cost and repairs, my only concern was that it got done,” said Town Supervisor Ronald W. Bertram on Friday. “Since the repairs were done in January, we’ve had no incidents.”
