Construction improvements happening at high school

Posted

Standley Lake High School is in the process of some maintenance improvements this summer.

The improvements include: ADA site access to the ball fields, elevator assessment and improvements, paving and concrete replacement, backflow and sprinkler drain improvements, HVAC upgrades, general renovation of the bleachers, electrical outlets and the public access system and repairs to the tennis courts.

“The improvements will help ensure a safe learning and working environment for the school, department personnel and the general public, “said project director Mike Moonan.

“The improvements address basic infrastructure that is in need of replacement. “

In 2012, Jeffco Public School voters approved a $99 million bond package for facilities.

According to the Jeffco website, the majority of the projects for the entire district in the bond program is expected to be complete by 2015, with only five expected for completion in 2016.

Moonan said the Standley Lake projects and improvements will be completed by the end of the summer.

But until then, residents living near the school can expect some inconvenient construction, he added.

“Normal access to the school will be restricted to insure the public’s safety, but barricades and construction signage should be clearly posted to help keep everyone safe,” he said.

“There will more than likely be some additional noise and dust during the day.”

The district is using water trucks to help keep the dust down, but is asking residents for their patience during the construction period.
