WARNER ROBINS -- The Houston County Board of Education will vote Tuesday on whether to partner with the county government to complete additional roadwork at the new Langston Road Elementary School in Perry.

The $252,000 additions include sidewalks, curbs, gutters, storm water piping and an additional turn lane from Lake Joy to Langston Road.

The Houston County Commission requested the additional construction as part of its roadwork project and will reimburse the school board for the entire construction cost once the project is completed. The commissioners approved the partnership Jan. 7. The project is funded by the special purpose local option sales tax, said Scott Hill, director of facilities for Houston County schools.

Langston Road Elementary is scheduled to open at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.
