Sandy Hook School Shooting

Iron Fence Being Built in Front of Sandy Hook Elementary

Site of Newtown massacre no longer in use


A black iron fence is expected to soon replace the concrete barriers and orange traffic cones erected to block the Dickinson Drive entrance to the now-vacant Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The school has been closed since Dec. 14, when a gunman blasted his way inside and killed 20 students and six educators. In the plans to demolish the 56-year-old building and replace it with a new facility on the same property, the current driveway to the school will no longer be used for anything but emergency access.
