Workers are putting some of the finishing touches on the $72 million Owego Elementary School project.

The new complex is being built on the site of the former school, which was damaged by flooding that started on the first day of the school year in September 2011.

About 485 Owego Elementary students will start their next school year at an old Union-Endicott School District building in West Corners.

Students, teachers and support workers have been making the trip into Broome County, awaiting the completion of the new school.

Owego-Apalachin School District officials expect classes in the new facility will start in early January.
