ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Phase one of a major construction project at Monroe High School has wrapped up.
In the coming weeks, the facilities department will select a bid for the second phase of the project.
That second part will include a classroom building between the two-story structure and the annex building in the gym.
The construction should be done around this time next year for the building.
"Everything is coming together," said Bob Fowler, the Dougherty County School System facilities director. "The phase one package is going to allow the project to move faster because we have already built the building pads, we have the sanitary sewer in the ground. We've already done a lot of the work that most contractors have to do once they get the job."
There will be a pre-construction meeting August 11 at 2 p.m. in the Monroe High School cafeteria.
The final packages must be sent in by August 30, which means construction should start back up again in a month.
