Ground breaking for new Lake Travis ISD middle school set for Feb. 13


The Lake Travis ISD board of trustees will host a groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m. Feb. 13 to commemorate construction of Middle School No. 3, located at 16101 W. Hwy. 71 at Vail Divide, according to a release from the district.

“The 240,000-square-foot campus will accommodate 1,200 students in two-story, grade-level
houses nestled into the hillside with Hill Country views. It will feature outdoor science and art areas, an outdoor gathering space, abundant natural light, and multipurpose breakout areas that allow for flexibility and collaboration,” according to the release.

The project is part of the district’s $253 million bond program approved by voters in November. The $76.2 million facility was designed by Fields & Associates Architects and will be built by American Constructors, both of whom are headquartered in Austin.
