City officials, students and parents gathered today to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony marking the start of much-needed renovations to Albany High School.
Work will begin this month on the project’s first phase, including the construction of a new three-story 120,000 square foot academic building behind the existing school.
That is set to be completed in 2019.
Mayor Kathy Sheehan spoke at the ceremony, saying improving the school is a vital investment for the city of Albany.
“We recognize a vibrant and vital place here in the Capital Region,” Sheehan said.
The entire construction project will have a total of four phases and will be fully finished in 2025.
