Our school buildings may be quiet, now that it’s summer, but there is a lot of activity at the stadium complex. Here are some updates from our construction team: Temporary access to the track and field project site off Trolley Road continues to work well, with no dirt noticeable on the adjacent roadway. The work area perimeter has been protected with temporary six-foot high fencing, and existing storm water catch basins have been protected with geotextile fabric. Found bedrock has been removed, and installation of a turf field collector storm drainage pipe is well under way. The lower soil spoil area has been rototilled, topsoil and other spoil materials have been placed in the area, and rough grading has begun. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the summer!

At the stadium complex, the track and sub-base area has been removed, and a clean, angular crushed ledge rock base is now in place; the perimeter of the work area has been protected with temporary six-foot-high chain link fencing; existing stormwater catch basins have been protected with geotextile fabric; and the lower soil field area has been rototilled, and topsoil is starting to be placed in the area. (This area has 4’ tall orange temporary construction fencing separating it from actively used playfield areas.)

Work is in full swing at the high school stadium complex. Some highlights from the past few weeks include the creation of a temporary construction access point on Trolley Road, the removal of rubber surface from track oval and field event areas, the marking out of underground electric to the new scoreboard, removal of football goal posts and scoreboard flagpole, and the start of installation of silt fencing at required perimeter areas.
