Demolition of the old school campus that also houses Midway City Hall is paving the way for a new recreation center to serve the east end of Liberty County. The project, for which $3 million has been earmarked, also includes a new Midway/Riceboro library branch and new classrooms.
Last week, city hall operations were relocated to the Midway Police Department building while demolition took place. On Monday, crews could be seen clearing away the debris at the Oglethorpe Highway site.
The demolished classrooms once served as the old Midway Middle School campus before being converted to offices and a civic center for the city. It also once served as a K-12 school for the county. 
County Administrator Joey Brown was unavailable as of press time to provide an updated construction timeline, but in September he told the Coastal Courier that SPLOST dollars were used to pay for demolition and asbestos removal, though more SPLOST money would have to be accumulated before construction could begin.
