PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The Massachusetts School Building Authority has approved Pittsfield’s design for a new Taconic High School and will provide additional funding for construction.

The Berkshire Eagle (https://bit.ly/1GmCmpu ) that officials received word Wednesday that the $120.8 million project won final state approvals, along with $72.4 million in state funding.

The City Council in April had unanimously approved bonding for up to $45 million for the city’s share of the school.

The new 246,520-square-foot school will be constructed adjacent to the current Taconic High and is expected to open in the fall of 2018.

Mayor Daniel Bianchi says the selection of construction firms and a formal ground-breaking are expected in early 2016.
