Work on the expansion of the car line at Pepperell Primary (map) continues. The car line is expected to be finished within two to three weeks, according to Sam Sprewell, chief of operations at Floyd County Schools. “Paving started Wednesday, and we still have sod and striping to do,” he said. The car line will wrap around a parking area for the adjacent softball field. “This expansion should handle the problems we’ve had for years with the overflow of the car line,” Sprewell said. “We’ve had to use the church parking lot across the street, and this new line will be safer and work far more smoothly.” The project cost is $120,000 and the money is coming out of the education local option sales tax fund.
