Collins Lane Elementary School – Anticipated Construction during December 2017
December will be a noteworthy month for the new Collins Lane Elementary School. Among the major construction events planned for this month are continuing work on the masonry walls, installation of steel in the kitchen area and over the gymnasium and framing of classroom walls. As the roofing work begins, a crane will be moved onto the site to lift steel into place. In addition, concrete will be poured to form the floor of the mezzanine area.
The upper part of Cougar Lane (see map) will be closed on or about Dec. 15 as installation of a new sanitary sewer line and four manholes begins. This work may require the use of a hoe ram to break-up and remove rock, so some additional noise should be expected. Parent pick-ups and drop-offs of students during this closure of Cougar Lane will be relocated to the lower gymnasium area, and school buses will continue to use the main entrance.
The last day of school will be Dec. 20. On Dec. 21, the sanitary sewer work will move into the main parking lot, which will be closed during the holiday break.
Here is the anticipated schedule for the holiday period:
Dec. 21: Normal construction schedule
Dec. 22– 23: Normal construction schedule; main (upper) parking lot closed to traffic until Jan. 2
Dec. 24-25: No construction
Dec. 26 – Dec. 30: Normal construction schedule
Dec. 31- Jan. 1: No construction
Jan. 2: Normal construction schedule resumes; main (upper) parking lot reopens.
Jan. 3: School resumes
