Work well underway on new school in Port Edward

Construction is well underway on the new school in Port Edward, according to corporate administrator Ron Bedard.

Construction is well underway on the new school in Port Edward, according to corporate administrator Ron Bedard.

“They made the first pour on the footings [on Tuesday]…I think they will have all the footings in early next week,” he told council.

“They’re probably a week behind at the moment, but at this stage in the game a week is nothing. They can make that up in no time.”

When the construction got started, the main door to the municipal offices was closed and the parking lot was partly ripped up meaning people had to park around back and go up a set of stairs to access the building. But, says Bedard, it is a small price to pay for the work being done.

“It’s been pretty noisy, but we’re surviving…Anybody that has come in is just happy to see the progress underway,” he said.
