Groundbreaking ceremony held for new elementary school

Work began Friday morning for Fayette County's newest elementary school.

Several city and school officials were on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony of the yet to be named school.

The new $17 million facility going up on Keithshire Way, in Lexington, will open in August, 2011.

It's expected to enroll around 650 students.

The school will be the first new elementary school to ease overcrowding in Lexington in more than 10 years.

Liberty, Sandersville, and William Wells Brown all replaced older elementary schools.
