NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Officials in Newtown, Conn., say crews will soon install a black iron fence to block the driveway of the school where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators in December.

The News-Times reports the fence will replace concrete barriers and orange traffic cones that currently block the entrance to Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Town officials have approved a plan to tear down the school and build a new one on the same property. A new driveway would be built a short distance from the current one.

Officials are planning use a $50 million state grant for construction. Town residents must approve the rebuilding plan.

Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza gunned down 26 people and killed himself at the school, after fatally shooting his mother at their Newtown home.
