THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Officials in Lafourche Parish say construction on a Career Magnet Center has been moving smoothly despite recent weather delays.

Ground-breaking for the new school on Louisiana Highway 308 was held in January.

In recent weeks, work has been proceeding on pilings and foundations.

The Daily Comet reports (http://bit.ly/1m7Vtpx ) the $15.9 million project is expected to be completed by July 2015.

The center is designed to bridge education with the area's economy by allowing junior and senior high school students to earn industry-based certificates.
