Officials with the Natrona County School District say recent precipitation has slowed the progress of Kelly Walsh High School's over $80 million reconstruction.

“The moisture that we’ve been receiving really hampers any kind of site work, in that, you just can’t be very mobile with the trucks and cranes on the site,” district executive director of business services Dennis Bay said.

But Bay said that, despite the poor weather, foundation and structure work marches on.

“The roof structure is up, and they’re progressing from east to west,” Bay said. “The main gymnasiums – those foundation walls are well underway and should be completed by the end of the month.”

Bay said demolition and reconstruction work should be completed by 2017. The building construction phase should be completed by the end of 2016.
