Local company gets EHS construction bid

Demolition and reconstruction to the wing of Erie High School that was destroyed in a large fire is set to begin in a week.

The Erie School Board voted in a special board meeting today to award an 'Emergency Contract' to E.E . Austin and Son Inc., of Erie, to begin selective demolition and reconstruction.

Superintendent Brian Polito says the crews are set to begin work in a week and are on schedule to be completed before school begins in August.  "They're going to demolition some of the structural steel in the horticulture wing and part of the welding lab, as well as the classrooms above it," explains Polito.  "Then, replace the structural steel so that when the students start in the fall, we won't be bringing in big cranes to do that type of work."

The School Board also awarded bids to other companies to replace the security system and the floors that were damaged in the fire.
