Frequently Asked Questions

What is happening at South HS this summer?

  • Outdoor construction will bring new sidewalks and ramps, possible seal coating and striping of the parking lot and new exterior lighting.

  • The gym and wrestling room, several bathrooms, and special education class rooms will also receive new LED lighting.

Substantial completion is scheduled for July 31, and complete in public spaces two weeks after that.

How will construction impact traffic and parking?
