Summer construction is in full swing!

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Summer construction is in full swing!

There is a lot of construction activity happening at La Follette High School this summer. Workers have started heavy demolition of markerboards, windows, and casework in the classrooms and hallways in preparation for brand new finishes coming soon.

Outside the building, crews are wrapping up soil preparation work using a process called soil stabilization in the stadium area. Once complete, the area will be ready to pour the new curb around the track. Meanwhile, the new gym addition is coming along nicely as the foundation is being poured soon.

Did you know?

Soil stabilization is a process where the physical properties of soils are altered to increase the strength or bearing capacity. This is often done by using Portland cement or a lime-based mix to form permanent bonds between soil particles. Soil stabilization is key to providing a strong working platform for the foundation and all other parts of the project.
