Hagerstown Junior College officials are expected to award a $7.5 million bid today to build a new computer and library center that school officials say will become the centerpiece of the college.
School officials planned to start construction of the Learning Resource Center late last year, but there have been delays in the project, said President Norman Shea.
Part of the delay is being caused by a complicated approval process involving the state Department of General Services and the Maryland Higher Education Commission, Shea said.
Despite the holdup, the center is still scheduled to open by the fall of 1999, Shea said.
The Hagerstown Junior College Board of Trustees will consider a $7.5 million bid for the project and will likely vote to award it today.
