New Harlan High School Construction Running Ahead Of Schedule

School officials say the building of a new Eastern Kentucky high school appears to be a month ahead of schedule.

An architect says he expects the new Harlan County High School to be completed next April and the school would be ready for students in fall 2008.

School officials say they've run into rising construction costs which has driven up the overall cost of the project.

"We've been fortunate enough to get additional funding from the state, working with the school board, and we're making progress," said Architect David Samokar.

The new high school will consolidate Evarts, Cawood, and Cumberland High Schools into one. It's drawn opposition from those who don't want to see those high schools closed.
