IAEGER, W.Va. (AP) - Construction of a new $12 million elementary school in McDowell County is expected to begin after crews stabilize a riverbank that partially collapsed earlier this year.

School Superintendent Nelson Spencer tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1qAWHwJ) that demolition of the old Iaeger Elementary School has been completed. He says large rocks from the construction area are being used to help stabilize the bank.

He says the new Iaeger Elementary School is the last project in a 14-year-old flood-proofing effort by the state Department of Education, the state School Building Authority and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Currently, there’s no time frame for the project’s completion.
