New Norwalk High School’s $239M construction begins after 1 month delay

Construction officially began this week on the new Norwalk High School with the installation of fencing around the site. This marks the first step in the five-year project that is scheduled for completion in 2029, though students will start classes in fall 2027. The construction comes a month later than the district’s anticipated February start. Last month, Deputy Superintendent Sandra Faioes, who oversees facilities and operations, said that groundbreaking on the new NHS was delayed by winter weather conditions. Contractor Gilbane Building Company will construct the school where the Testa Field Complex is currently located. The $239 million project will cost the city about $47.8 million with an 80 percent state reimbursement rate.
