WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Plumbers and other contractors have been working double shifts at Waynesboro Area Senior High School to push themselves ahead of schedule in renovating the existing building, according to Jeff Adams, maintenance supervisor.
Their other focus is the 108,000-square-foot addition with the school's new three-court gymnasium and auditorium.
Recent efforts for the $46 million renovation and expansion project have fireproofed the new construction.
"The original auditorium is being transformed into our new cafeteria," Adams said.
A groundbreaking ceremony Jan. 9, 2007, officially launched the work, although asbestos largely was removed prior to that. The project's completion has been targeted for April 2009.
Adams said the new, 1,600-seat auditorium has been leveled, and the view from East Second Street includes the hull of that portion of the structure.
