REPUBLIC, Mo. — Work begins this month on a new, larger transportation facility for Republic School District, which will feature enhanced safety and efficiency, KY3 reports.
The facility will have more than five times the space of the current facility, which is comprised of three acres. The new facility will also include two entrance and exit points instead of one, to reduce traffic congestion, Chance Wistrom, the district’s superintendent, told the news outlet.
