SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine
(NEWS CENTER) -- After ten years of planning and 33 months of construction, the renovation of South Portland High School is complete.
A new addition was built onto the high school last year, and this year, 200 thousand square feet in the old building received updates.
"There were a number of issues we needed to correct," said Superintendent Suzanne Godin, "from handicap access, to air quality issues, and educational planning issues. Being able to put all three of those into a brand new building makes it a wonderful opportunity for South Portland."
The $47.3 million project was approved by voters in 2010. The building needed structural improvements, new heating and security systems, and updated technology, among other enhancements.
