ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (AP) - Officials say construction on a new building for the South Louisiana Community College Evangeline campus in St. Martinville will likely begin in July.
The cost of the project is estimated at $9.2 million.
The new building will replace the existing Evangeline campus. The SLCC has campuses in Lafayette, St. Martinville, Abbeville, Crowley, Franklin, New Iberia, Opelousas and Ville Platte.
In St. Martinville, a 36,849-square-foot building will be constructed across the street from the existing campus.
Steven Domingue, project manager with Architects Southwest, says as part of the new campus plan, all programming will be under one roof.
