A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Thursday, January 22 to mark the beginning of construction of the new Citronelle High School. White-Spunner Construction won the bid for general contractor with a $22 million proposal last month. The new school building will be built across the street from the existing high school on a 13-acre site and is scheduled for completion in July 2016 according to the current timeline. The project is one of several included in the Mobile County Public School System's plan to complete $100 million in school construction over the next two years.
