As reported in the Baltimore Business Journal, Governor Hogan toured the construction site of Fort Worthington School for an update from Maryland Stadium Authority officials overseeing the project.

The Journal describes,

Next fall, the work [on Fort Worthington] will be complete — and the state-of-the-art building will have wireless technology, outdoor learning areas, art and media rooms, a gymnasium, performance stage, flexible classrooms and a capacity for 787 students and staff, well over the current enrollment of 326.

“We’re excited about this program — it looks like it’s working,” said Gov.Larry Hogan, who toured the construction site Tuesday morning in a hard hat and bright yellow vest. He even installed a concrete block on the foundation base.

“It’s going to be a transformation, I hope, for the neighborhood,” he said.
