WATERTOWN, S.D.–More construction projects are in the works at Lake Area Technical College (LATC) to handle a growing number of students there.

LATC President Mike Cartney says they plan to tie together the north and south campuses of the school with an archway project that will include new buildings on both the north and south sides of Arrow Avenue, which will be linked by a skywalk….

Cartney says linking these buildings together without having pedestrian traffic crossing Arrow Avenue is key…

Cartney says the archway project will be a sort of gateway to the campus…

Cartney says Governor Noem is recommending the state pick up half the cost of this construction project…

LATC had about 2,200 students enrolled for the fall semester.

The spring semester begins January 10th.
