If you’ve been driving on Old U.S. 70 lately, you’ve probably noticed the extensive site preparation and construction work that’s been taking place at the old Swannanoa High School. Work is currently underway on major renovations and additions at the historic building that is now home to Community High, an alternative public school. The property, located at 235 Old U.S.Hwy 70, was built in the 1920s and was showing its age.
The project is expected to cost more than $12 million. It includes a classroom and administrative addition, as well as extensive renovations and upgrades to the existing building. Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
