FARMINGTON, AR -- Construction is circling the site of the future new Farmington High School.

According to Farmington School Board President Jeff Oxford, a new performing arts center and gymnasium are currently under construction.

Crews started digging up the dirt last fall and the brand new building is expected to be complete by January 1, 2015.

The new facilities are being built right next to where the future new Farmington High School will be. Oxford said the district is currently waiting on the state to approve the plan for the new high school before they break ground.
