New construction underway for local elementary


Crews are making progress to meet deadlines for the new Baldwin Elementary School.

They’re  currently building the new portion of the school which is set to be complete by August 2019. Crews are also renovating what’s left standing of the old school, including Blue Devil Gym, which Superintendent Roy Webb said will be ready for the Blue Devil Basketball season this fall.

“We’ll be ready to go, so as people come in for basketball games they will be able to access the driveway here, the parking lot, and Blue Devil Gym will all be available for practice on October 1 and for our first game which will be in November,” said Webb.

Webb added the budget is in good shape.

“Not a lot of change orders, which is good because when you do demolition, asbestos removal, and renovation a lot of times problems come up,” Webb said. “There have been have been a few change orders and a few things we weren’t expecting, but it has all been within contingency of the project.”

Webb mentioned the renovations are ahead of schedule.
