If the Norwalk (Conn.) district moves forward with plans to construct a new Norwalk High School, it will be built on the site of the existing school's football field.
The $225 million building would replace the existing high school, reports The Norwalk Hour. The school board has not voted to proceed with construction, but decided that if the project moves forward, the school will rise on the football field.
The project also would replace the athletic facilities that would be displaced during the construction of a new high school.
The 330,000-square-foot building would be completed in two phases. The athletic facilities would be completed two years after the school is built.
The state is expected to cover 80% of the construction costs as well as 50% for an $8 million indoor pool.
