Demo crews are starting to clear a spot for Sioux City's new Washington Elementary School.
The new facility will be built on the land where the old school sits now, near the intersection of South Martha and Glenn Avenue.
Monday, Hebert Construction was cleaning last week's snow out of the area. In coming days, they'll be moving and demolishing homes and garages at six lots north of the school. The say those properties will be empty by the end of March.
"This will all be graded out. Basically, the same as what it is, but houses gone and a dirt lot," said company official, Josh Hebert.
School officials say the demolition contract for the school is still out for bid. They'd like to begin tearing down May 15th.
The new Washington Elementary is set to be ready for kids August 2015.
