HOLLEY – A $27 million capitol improvement project, the largest in Holley Central School’s history, will be celebrated with a ribbon-cutting and open house on Tuesday.

Contractors have been working the past two years on the district campus, overhauling the high school side of the middle-high school, replacing roofs on that building plus the elementary school, and tearing down the current bus garage and building a new transportation facility.

The district also built a new football field and all-weather track, and tackled a series of other improvements.

This summer crews worked to create a revamped foyer, and put the finishing touches on a library, dining hall, resource room and new offices. There is also a new light court area and science labs.

School and community leaders will cut a ribbon in front of the middle-high school at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. The campus will then be open for tours until 8 p.m.
