    WLHS STADIUM & PARKING EXPANSION – PROJECT UPDATE

    Air photo of site

    Raising the Roof! There have been product delays that have kept the stadium from completing in October as originally scheduled, however the project is moving forward. The stadium roof structure shipped in from Idaho, and the installation of the sheet metal roofing is near completion. The new restrooms, stadium seating, and updated press rooms are all getting finishing touches. The field lights have been operational since September, which has allowed evening soccer and other games to occur.

    The addition of storm drain work in the bus loop consumed contractor resources and shifted the priority toward the reopening of the bus loop in time for school to start. Though the contractors did make the bus loop deadline the ability to concurrently complete the stadium in time for football playoffs did not materialize.

    The new parking lot and plaza have a subterranean drainage system consisting of a series of tanks. These tanks were delayed which led to a series of design changes and ultimately, schedule loss. This new system is designed to intercept and treat rain water from the parking lot and hillside, which will not only clean water return to the river but prevent it from streaming into the stadium and track.

    When the parking lot is complete it will be connected to the stadium with a new plaza which will provide new spaces for students during the school day and the community to gather during sporting events. The General Contractor continues to try and improve the schedule with creative means.

  • WLHS Stadium Project

    Posted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 6/14/2021
    We have two updates to share regarding the West Linn High School Stadium Project. 
     
    Considerable progress has been made in clearing out the site for the new parking lot. Fabric and the first layer of rock is being installed at areas where finish grade has already been met. Excavation for the new plaza adjacent the existing stadium has begun. The track is being protected during this process to allow for heavy equipment to access the stadium for improvements.
     
    We would also like to remind the community that the entire track and field area are closed to the school and to the public during construction. 
     
    This closure will extend through the summer and into the early fall for public safety. Closure signs have been posted around the site to remind community members and the district asks that the public observe the closure during construction. Thank you for your patience and partnership as we complete these improvements that will serve the greater community for years to come.
