Schools are Ready for Construction
Crews are getting ready to break ground on new school construction. Last year, voters approved the $18.2 million project to add 14 new elementary classrooms, three media centers, and bring full ADA compliance to the older portion of Livingston High School. While a good portion of the work will begin after schools close for the summer, cones and fencing are among the signs of the work to come and the procedures to make sure the construction happens safely around the schools.
