County school officials will get a site leveled for a future elementary school and ball fields as part of a project to build a new road from Highway 58 to the Volkswagen plant.
Gary Waters, maintenance director, said over 600,000 cubic yards of dirt will have to be removed from hilly sections of the property in the road building project.
The county schools obtained the 106-acre tract behind Central High School and Brown Middle School earlier from the federal government.
Officials said that dirt will be placed on low-lying sections to make a site for the school and ball fields.
Mr. Waters said the school will be a replacement for Harrison Elementary. He said, "Also, Hillcrest Elementary will be involved and the zoned portion of Lakesite Elementary."
Wright Brothers is handling the massive dirt moving project.
