Asbestos was unexpectedly found during the demolition phase of a renovation at Wapato High School in Washington state, causing delays in the construction project at the school.
According to construction crews, the discovery has prompted an extension of the cleanup process at the school. The remodeling project was supposed to be completed before the school year began, but it is now behind schedule.
Officials with the school have stated that the safety of students and teachers is not at risk, but managing the flow of students within the school is difficult. Fortunately, the demolition phase that construction crews are currently working on is scheduled to be completed this week, and the next phase is supposed to begin shortly thereafter.
