Construction has officially begun on a new middle school in Selah.

School administrators and the public attended a groundbreaking this afternoon for the new campus next to Selah Junior High School -- the project has been in the works for years.

Superintendent Shane Backlund says the school will cost about $28 million to construct, and will be able to house over 800 students, grades 6 through 8.

Construction on the school is expected to finish by December of next year.
