  • Project Updates

    Posted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 12/2/2022

    Good afternoon WLWV Community,

    We have multiple project updates to share. Exterior walls of the new school were recently installed in addition to several accompanying components. Interested community members are encouraged to watch this project update video with more details. 

    The contractor also recently erected the sports field lighting at the new Athey Creek Middle School. These fixtures have become a regular feature of modern athletic fields and will support school and community use of the track and field as darkness comes early for much of the year. The modern LED lighting is energy efficient and the fixtures have a high degree of control over the spread of light. The same technology is currently in use at West Linn High School, Wilsonville High School and Wood Middle School. The lights are permitted for use until 10 PM.

    Asphalt paving on Dollar Street is schedule to commence during the week of October 31, 2022. All work will occur during normal working hours, but the exact start date is dependent on weather. One through lane of traffic will remain open for the majority of this work. There will likely be a small window of work that will require traffic to detour.
