Las Cruces – Some major construction projects are being planned in the Las Cruces Public Schools.

A community meeting this week centered on a new high school, to be located at the intersection of Dripping Springs Road and Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.

ASA Architects Studio and an Albuquerque design firm are working on schematic drawings for the project, energy and life cycle cost analysis and an extension of Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.

It will include an upgrade to the school's science wing; restroom
renovations; and heating and air conditioning installation. The work should be complete by November ..

Finally, the design is finished and the architect is working on contract documents for the Mayfield High Drama classroom and performance area construction. The $2 million project is scheduled to begin by the end of the month.
