A drone was able to capture photos of the work being done at Roosevelt Elementary and Detroit Lakes Middle school. All of the construction underway is part of two separate projects known as the middle school exterior project and the site projects.

The bus drop off lane on the north side of the schools is nearly complete, along with the staff parking lot at the northwest corner where the playground used to be.

Overall, the projects are meant to improve traffic flow, student safety, parking lots and operational costs.

According to Ryan Tangen, the target completion date is August 23. School begins in early September.
