FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 20, 2021
Construction on the addition to the Gadsden Center of Doña Ana Community College (DACC), 1700 E. O’Hara Rd., is now complete.
The project, which broke ground in 2019, includes a new nearly 11,000 sq. ft. facility and renovations to the original building. The new addition, along with improvements to the original building, costing $6 million was funded by the 2015 general obligation bond election.
The new facility, named Roadrunner Hall, includes science laboratories, support space, a computer classroom, expandable lecture classrooms, a flexible technology classroom and a lounge area for students. Roadrunner Hall replaces the existing portable buildings. In addition, the construction improved major water infrastructure needs and erosion control issues.
Renovations to the existing building included new carpeting throughout classrooms and offices, new LED lighting, and upgrades to the security office and restrooms. The facility will be ready for classes in fall of 2021.
