Construction at Willard Site Begins Soon

Temporary school site for Edison and Camas Ridge reconstruction

Construction will be underway soon at the former Willard school site at 29th & Lincoln in south Eugene.

Thanks to voters’ approval of the Eugene School District 4J bond measure last fall, two aging school buildings in South Eugene will be replaced over the next few years: Edison Elementary School and Camas Ridge Elementary School.

The buildings cannot be constructed in place while school operations continue, and no other school building in the area has capacity to temporarily house the school programs, so a temporary school site is necessary.

School operations will temporarily relocate to the Willard site during construction of the new buildings:

• 2020–2022: Edison Elementary School at Willard
• 2022–2024: Camas Ridge Elementary at Willard

The following changes are coming at Willard to prepare it to serve as a temporary “swing school” location:

• Fall 2019: Removal of old Willard classroom wings
• Winter 2019: Site prep & renovation of Willard gym
• Spring 2020: Construction of new classroom spaces
• Summer 2020: Installation of new playground
