Construction is kicking off!
Last week crews prepped the site for construction activities and installed signage and fencing around the area for safety. A temporary sidewalk leading to the rear entrance of Badger Rock was installed, which will be used for student and staff building access when school is back in session.
Investigation work for existing onsite utilities is underway. Workers have also started constructing a new stormwater retention basin and underground piping system.

A stormwater retention basin collects water runoff from sites after a large rain. The retention basin holds the water and slowly releases it to avoid overflowing the storm sewers or backing up into the nearby streets.
