North Little Rock Schools in the Middle Of a $223 Million Makeover

In addition, a new football stadium will be built to replace the Depression-era stadium on Main Street.

“The old one is being torn down,” Cound said. “We’re going north-south instead of east-west. The south end will be tucked into actual school environment.”

Phase II

The elementary schools in the first phase are expected to be completed roughly by November 2014, Cound said, though exact dates may vary due to demolition work.

Before those are finished, work will begin on the second phase of the capital improvement project.

Cound said work on Phase II is expected to begin by the beginning of March.

“So we would be off and running with those before the others are completely finished,” he said.

It will include new buildings for Crestwood and Glenview Elementary Schools; renovations and additions to Pike View, Seventh Street and Indian Hills Elementary Schools; and improvements on Ridgeroad Middle School.

As part of this phase, Pike View will become a pre-K center, Lakewood and Ridgeroad Middle Schools will transition into a new North Little Rock Middle School, and the administrative offices will move to the high school campus, leaving the current facility at 2700 Poplar St. for other services.

All of the work, Cound said, is expected to be finished by 2015.
