Preliminary Work to Begin at Edison Site

Activity to prepare for construction of the new school starts in July

Preparation for construction of the new Edison Elementary School is about to begin. Starting next week, some minor pre-construction work will begin in the neighborhood. Minor traffic interruptions should be expected. The first pre-construction projects are rerouting the sewer line that runs under Edison and connecting it to one in Onyx Street, and placing a gravel pad at the school site.

In early July, contractors will make small, exploratory holes on 22nd Avenue and Onyx Street to ensure there is no existing subsurface construction to conflict with the proposed path of the sewer line. This work will create minor traffic interruptions for a day or two.

The work to reroute the sewer line will begin on or about July 21. This project will require excavation of 22nd Avenue from Onyx Street to the alley between Onyx and Emerald. Full or partial street closures will be necessary for public safety, but local access to properties will be maintained.

Also in mid-July, gravel will be delivered to the school site and laid in the grassy field area. The addition of this gravel pad for equipment will reduce mud and mess at the school site and in the neighborhood during construction. The gravel is being delivered now, in advance of construction, to save costs by relocating excess gravel from the Willard project site without multiple haulings and storage fees.

Later this year the original Edison building will be removed, and construction of the new building in the same location will begin in early 2021 to be completed by summer 2022.
