A new high school may soon be coming to Lexington.

Fayette County Public School Superintendent Dr. Tom Shelton says they are proposing the new school at their school board meeting Monday night.

Dr. Shelton says the school would help alleviate the overcrowding at the district's other five high schools.

The proposed school would be built at 1970 Winchester Road, right across from the Patchen Wilkes subdivision in between New Circle Road and I-75.

Officials say if approved the school would be completed by the Fall of 2017 and hold about 1,800 students.

The project would cost almost 76 million dollars. That money would come from a facilities fund that the district has had in place for years.

If approved, a committee would be established to determine the high school's boundaries.

Dr. Shelton says a majority of the students would be taken from the Henry Clay and Bryan Station boundaries.
