Footings poured for new high school


Despite wet weather and ankle-deep mud, the new high school is beginning to take shape. The first concrete footings were poured Sept. 20 and the process will continue through the fall.

“It’s pretty much a given that Mother Nature’s going to get involved,” said Charles Oestreich, director of facilities and construction services.

Oestreich said rain prevented workers from making any progress on the site the day after the first concrete pouring. Typical construction schedules allow for a certain number of non-work days each month, so when poor weather slows the process, the overall project remains on track.
