Construction begins on Midtown Elementary School

MADISON – Not everything is on hold during the current COVID-19 situation. Construction is under way on the new elementary school in Madison.

Workers opened a construction office on site and began moving in equipment and supplies for what will become Midtown Elementary. The new $34 million campus is being built on Wall Triana next to the Kroger grocery store, where site work had been steady progressing for several weeks.

Bailey-Harris Construction is the prime building contractor while Stanley Construction led the site preparation work.

The K-5 school is scheduled to open in Fall 2021 and hold about 900 students.

Madison City Schools interim superintendent Eric Terrell said former superintendent Robby Parker, along with community and city leaders, helped make the new school possible.

“Mr. Parker and our board of education did an outstanding job, along with our city and our mayor and our councilman,” he said.

Madison residents overwhelmingly approved a 12-mill property tax increase in September to fund the construction of the school and a new middle school, plus additions at Bob Jones and James Clemens.

Site preparation for the new middle school is expected to begin within the next couple of months. That school, which has yet to be named, is scheduled to open in Fall 2022.
