A Knoxville company will build Roane County’s new elementary school.
The new school will be located on Ollis Road near Oliver Springs.
The school board plans to close Dyllis Elementary School after the new school is built.
The Roane County Board of Education selected Rouse Construction for the project during a special-called meeting last month.
“We’re excited,” Rouse project manager Alan Calhoun said. “It’s a big thing for Roane County, and it’s a big thing for us.”
