Cruising Right Along!

With just over a month before school is back in session, the construction team is all hands on deck for both interior and exterior work at East High School.

Progress on the new welcome center addition is coming along nicely as all structural steel has been set, allowing work to begin on the exterior enclosure. This week, wood blocking for windows and doors is being installed, and next week windows and roofing will follow.

In early August, site crews will begin prepping the parking lot outside the welcome center for its refresh with new sidewalks, asphalt, and landscaping.
