WAYNE TOWNSHIP, Ind. -- Construction work will soon get underway in the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township on a $3.65 million project at Chapel Glen Elementary School and $8.5 million worth of improvements at other buildings.

District spokesperson Mary Lang said the money has been approved, but the district has not yet started spending it.

“The work at Chapel Glen will involve updates like new carpeting and wall coverings - nothing major in terms of a remodel,” said Lang. “The bulk of the other money (the $8.5 million) will go towards re-roofing Ben Davis High School. That will be a major job, with the building having more than a million square feet under roof.”

The re-roofing schedule is still being finalized.

“We're trying to make sure that the work disrupts student class time as little as possible,” said Lang.

Work is expected to last through 2018.
