BRIDGEPORT — Crews are nearing completion on the rebuilding of the Starfire gas station and convenience store on Main Street.

The outside of the new structure has been completed, and crews are now focusing on the inside and the area where the gas pumps will sit.

Eric Johnson, a representative of the Hartley Co., said the workers hope to have the project completed by the end of June.

When asked about what big differences this new building will provide over the old building, he said space was at a premium in the old structure. The new facility will be larger and more open.

“This store will be more open on the inside compared to the small, cramped area of the last building,” he said.
