WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Construction crews working on Waynesboro Area Senior High School are spending their time in business classrooms this week, getting them ready for the Aug. 31 start of the 2009-10 academic year.
"We're just pushing full steam. The contractors have told us we'll have our classrooms by that date," said Jeff Adams, maintenance director for Waynesboro Area School District.
Lobar Associates Inc. and subcontractors are wrapping up a $46 million high school renovation and expansion project. From it, the school gained more than 100,000 square feet, including a new auditorium.
"It's gratifying to see it when you see what you've come from when the shovel hit the ground in January 2007," Adams said.
