Aiken County is making room for a new school.
They broke ground Tuesday for Byrd Elementary School's new location. The new building will go up on Bettis Academy Road in Graniteville.
"You just can't explain the excitement inside the school that the new building is being built," said Principal Eddie Watkins. "We'll be in it in about two years, so our kindergartner, first, and second grades are overly excited."
The school is expected to be complete by late winter of 2007.
