It's been in the works for a while, but as the town prepares for the bulk of construction as part of phase II of the Berlin High School renovation project, officials have finally had a chance to slow down a celebrate a bit.
The town celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday morning, with state and local officials coming together to break ground on the second phase and celebrate the project being on time. Mayor Adam Salina and School Superintendent David Erwin said as of now, the first phase of the project will be ready to open in April.
"It's exciting to be at this point. It truly has been a true community undertaking," Salina said. "We can't wait to get a glimpse of the new work and give parents, students and staff a taste of what the whole project will look like when it is finished."
The first phase of the project unveiled will include several classrooms, as well as the cafeteria space.
