If spring comes as promised, contractors could begin setting up at the site of the first new Ames elementary school on Miller Avenue this week.
The Ames Community School Board approved contracts Monday with three prime contractors for the project.
That clears the way for Woodruff Construction, Kruck Plumbing & Heating and DeVries Electric to begin work.
Steve Lang, project director with construction management firm Taylor Ohde Kitchell, said if the weather is favorable, “contractors could begin setting up trailers and safety barriers,” according to a release from the district.
Superintendent Tim Taylor said according to the release that the launch of construction is historic.
