Watson Lane Elementary School

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Crews are expected to break ground Tuesday on a new Jefferson County Public Schools elementary school.

It will be at the site of the current Wilkerson Elementary school on Johnsontown Road, near Dixie Highway.

The district plans to move Wilkerson students and Watson Lane Elementary students into the new building and close both of the old schools.

The new school isn't expected to be finished until sometime in 2022.
