Summer Construction Projects Are Underway

Summer facility improvement projects make the most of empty schools and good weather

School’s out for summer, and construction crews are hard at work across the district making improvements to school facilities while students are out of school.

In addition to the annual summer work of deep cleaning, grounds keeping and maintenance projects, the 4J facilities team is tackling 70 school improvement projects from painting, parking lot restriping and HVAC repairs to replacing bleachers, building a garden shed and installing a new playground slide.

Schools, fields and other facilities will receive some TLC this summer, including:

  • Sidewalk and crossing upgrades — Awbrey Park, Howard and Gilham elementary schools, Kelly Middle School and other sites
  • Exterior painting — Adams and Awbrey Park elementary schools and other sites
  • Parking lot/drop-off area striping — multiple sites
  • Exterior lighting replacement — Chávez Elementary School and Cal Young Middle School
  • Flooring repairs and replacement — Gilham Elementary School, Spencer Butte and Monroe middle schools, and Sheldon High School
  • Bike hoops/skateboard racks — multiple sites
  • Cafeteria table replacement — multiple sites
  • Garden shed construction — River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School
  • Softball field drainage — Churchill High School
  • Locker room remodel — South Eugene High School
  • Bleacher replacement — South Eugene and Sheldon High Schools
  • Training room remodel — Churchill and Sheldon high schools
  • Slide installation — Twin Oaks Elementary School
  • Gym lighting upgrades — Churchill and South Eugene high schools

Many of these improvements are possible thanks to the bond measures approved by voters in 2011 and 2013. Thank you, voters, for investing in our community’s future.
