LIBERTY - The new Jones Park Elementary School may open a couple months earlier than scheduled if construction continues as it has in the past. Work also is progressing on the new Walnut Hill school project.
"Everything is going well" on the Jones Park school, said Mark Cleary, architect for Lucas Schwering Architects in Lexington.
He told the Casey County Board of Education Monday that Jan. 12 is the official date to complete construction on the new school that will consolidate Middleburg and Garrett elementary schools. However, D.W. Wilburn Inc., who is in charge of the project, is pushing for November.
"Everything is going smooth," said Cleary, adding he thinks the job will be finished early since construction is 60 percent complete.
"It really looks beautiful," he said of the building. Workmen were pouring concrete Monday in back of the building where buses will load and unload.
