Construction has begun on a new addition and some renovations at Argyle High School.
Argyle ISD announced on social media last week that the construction and renovations had started. The work had been approved by voters in the $166 million bond election last year.
Argyle Town Council on Feb. 27 unanimously approved a site plan amendment for an 18,000-square-foot, two-story addition of 12 classrooms to the southeast portion of the school. The addition will be constructed with exterior materials to match the rest of the school.
The building permit was picked up March 2, and demolition work began last week, just before spring break. Dirt work and utilities work began this week, and concrete work will begin next week, according to the school district.
Construction areas are fenced off from the campus.
Renovations to the existing high school building include HVAC replacement, and remodels of the kitchen remodel and restrooms.
