LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) — Construction on the main portion of the Walker High School overhaul is expected to begin soon.

The Advocate reports (bit.ly/1mHL5dY) the Livingston Parish School Board voted Thursday night to put the project out for bid.

The project involves dozens of new classrooms, a library, vocational training areas, cafeteria and music areas.

School board member Jimmy Watson, who represents Walker, said it took several months to complete designs that would fit the $23 million budget.
