WEBXTRA: TISD construction

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler ISD has several major construction projects underway.

Work is progressing on the new academic building for the Robert E. Lee High School campus despite a crane collapse that occurred on Dec. 19, 2018. A new crane was at the site within 24 hours of the collapse, and the new building is expected to be finished by Aug. of 2020.

Tyler ISD also reached a major milestone in regard to ongoing construction at the John Tyler High School campus. The concrete slab for a new academic administration building has been poured, and the next step is adding the building’s steel beams. That project is expected to wrap up in December of 2019.

We’ll have more on the ongoing Tyler projects later tonight.
