If you live in or around the Kingston area you are probably well aware of Kingston High School’s $137.5 million dollar renovation project (approved in December 2013) that is still underway. At a recent Board of Education meeting, the separation of students and construction work was discussed. The site’s project manager assured officials that all state requirements were being followed and that student areas were (and would remain) a safe distance from construction work.
In all construction zones there are inherent safety risks.
