Construction on the new East Fairmont Middle School is moving forward as planned.
The prime contractor, City Construction Co., began building the new school around September 2012, after about three months of site work last summer.
City Construction has had some delays because of all the rainy weather this season, but the project is still on schedule, said Pam Wean, acting president of Blackwood Associates Inc. in Fairmont and chief architect on this job.
She said the crews have been working on getting the gym walls up, and next they will focus on the insulation and roofing.
