Green T. Lindon expansion details


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Within the next two to four weeks, officials say the Lafayette Parish school system plans to put a call out for bids for the expansion of the space-strapped Green T. Lindon Elementary School.

Kyle Bordelon, the district's facility planning director, tells The Advocate the first of a nearly $9 million project planned at Lindon should be completed by August 2014.

The first phase involves the construction of three classroom buildings with about 30 classrooms, including a multipurpose room for physical education and administrative offices.

In the second phase, a fourth and final classroom building will be constructed along with an expansion of the cafeteria. A new parking lot will be part of the third and final phase.
