The maintenance and repair project is part of a larger, $328-million initiative to address needs at all five Alamo Colleges: San Antonio College, St. Philip’s College, Palo Alto College, Northwest Vista College, and Northeast Lakeview College, according to a news release.

LAN will oversee comprehensive facility renovations and improvements to existing facilities at all five colleges, as well as Educational Training Centers.
