Louisa County Accepting Bids for New High School Construction
Site where Louisa County High School used to stand
A groundbreaking to rebuild the earthquake-condemned Louisa County High School is less than two months away.
Construction bids just went out and are due back July 12.
The $53 million high school will include two gyms, an 800-seat auditorium, and a comprehensive career and technology education center.
Louisa County modeled its new modern building after high schools in Stafford County.
"Because we used a prototype, that moved it along more quickly. Of course, if you're a student or teacher in the modular high school, I'm sure it's not moving quickly enough. I'm sure they're very anxious to get back in a real building," said Deborah Pettit, Louisa County Public Schools superintendent.
The new high school will have a capacity for 350 additional students.
The county expects to break ground in early August with the new school opening for the start of the 2015 - 2016 school year.
