Saginaw United High School Topping Out

Saginaw United High School is a step closer to being completed.

Saginaw public school officials held a topping out ceremony Wednesday, where construction crews working on the new structure on Niagara St. placed the final steel beam at the top of the building. SPSD Superintendent Dr. Ramont Roberts called the ceremony another step in the journey toward improving the educational opportunities for Saginaw area students.

Roberts says the project remains on schedule and on budget, despite some worries about inflation pushing the project over budget last year. The new building will combine students from Arthur Hill and Saginaw High Schools. The $61 million project is one of four projects to improve the district, totaling about $100 million.

Other projects include remodeling the existing Saginaw High to house middle school students, remodeling Arthur Hill to house the Saginaw Arts and Sciences Academy, and building a new Handy School for elementary students.
