WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

The Worth County Superintendent said construction at Worth County High School is on track despite weather delays.

Bill Settle said that a majority of the exterior walls are finished. 

Crews are still working on right of ways and paving in the parking lot. 

Now they are more focused on the detailed pieces of construction.

"Currently, we are laying tile, putting in permanent tiles. We're putting in permanent counters and things like that," said Settle. "We are putting in logos, and things to brand the school with and so we're excited. I think the parents and kids are going to be really pumped up about the new facility."

Settle said they will have a ribbon cutting ceremony ahead of the start of school.
