UPike Construction Continues

Warm weather is helping progress on a construction project at the University of Pikeville.

Crews are working to build a home for UPIKE's new Optometry School and the current nursing program.

School officials say the building will be bigger than the Coal Building that now sits along Hambley Boulevard.

School officials say they are on schedule for the 18-month project and plan to begin its first classes in the Optometry Program in 2016.
