ALEXANDRIA, Louisiana — If all goes as planned, Central Louisiana Technical Community College's new campus in downtown Alexandria will be completed in about two years.
Jimmy Sawtelle, the school's chancellor, says the groundbreaking for the new campus is expected in September. If the weather is good, construction is expected to take about 20 months.
The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/1BAkyVA) the $22 million project will replace the current Alexandria campus on South MacArthur Drive.
Alexandria Mayor Jacques Roy told the city council last week that the city has finished its role in helping secure property for the project and has turned the process over to the Rapides Foundation, which is acting as a third-party partner to facilitate quick transfer of properties.
