2014 Bond Summer Projects Continue on Time and on Budget, Board Prepares for 2019 BondPosted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 7/9/2019
Thank you to our community for continuing to invest in WLWV school facilities! As the West Linn-Wilsonville School Board prepares to place a possible Capital Bond on the November 2019 Election Ballot, the District continues to complete some of the final projects of the 2014 Capital Bond thanks to the continued generosity of WLWV residents.
While well over 90 percent of the 2014 Capital Bond funds have been spent on pivotal projects such as the construction of Meridian Creek Middle School and Sunset Primary School, there's still more work taking place. This summer, work includes new carpeting at Cedaroak Park Primary, tennis court resurfacing at Wilsonville and West Linn high schools, track replacement at Wood Middle School, a new music room at Bolton Primary, a new playground and portable classrooms at Boeckman Creek Primary, and general site improvements across all 16 schools among other projects.
Work will continue through the summer, finishing in time for the start of the 2019-20 school year in August.

Summer Bond Projects Share a Theme of Safety and SecurityPosted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 6/27/2018 2:00:00 PM
Meridian Creek Middle School and Sunset Primary School enjoyed successful openings this past school year, but additional construction projects are still getting underway this summer.
Thanks to the generosity of the West Linn and Wilsonville communities for passing the 2014 Capital Bond, Boeckman Creek Primary, Bolton Primary, and West Linn High School are all receiving renovated safe and secure entryways this summer. The new entryways will ensure that each school is accessible by just one door that leads directly into the office during the school day while adding to the welcoming feel that West Linn-Wilsonville schools enjoy. Other safety features, such as upgraded locks and intercom systems, are also part of the design, as the district continues to think about safety and security in all of its schools.
In addition to a new entryway, Boeckman Creek will also receive lighting upgrades, fire sprinkler replacement, carpet replacement, and classroom porch replacements this summer. Demolition is nearly complete at Boeckman and Bolton. Entryway work at West Linn High School will begin in the coming weeks, meanwhile.
Another major bond project is underway at Wood Middle School, meanwhile, where the football field will receive synthetic turf and field lighting for the first time. Turf replacement is also underway for the baseball fields at Wilsonville High School and West Linn High School. The new turf replaces an existing playing surface that was first installed 13 years ago, far exceeding the eight-year warranty that is expected of such material. Thanks to consistent and careful upkeep from facilities staff, the district was able to increase the three fields’ playability well past the expected lifetime. A vital resource for both cities, the new turf fields will provide playing surfaces for the greater community for years to come.
New state-of-the-art LED gymnasium lighting has also been installed at several WLWV schools including Wood and Rosemont Ridge middle schools, Cedaroak Park, Stafford, and Willamette primaries. Smaller projects at Meridian Creek and Sunset will also be completed this summer, as the new buildings continue to receive fine-tuning and finishing touches.
Security cameras are also being added to school entryways across the district, increasing safety and security for staff and students. Security camera upgrades will also take place at West Linn and Wilsonville high schools.
Thanks to the hard work of contractors and the district’s operations department, all of the many construction projects throughout West Linn-Wilsonville are expected to be completed before the first day of school on Aug. 27. Thank you to our community for supporting facilities for current and future students!

Road Work on Schedule for July FinishPosted by Amy Berger on 3/29/2017
Meridian Creek Middle School municipal infrastructure projects underway and making progress
Drivers and pedestrians experienced short delays March 20-24 at the four-way stop at the Wilsonville/Boeckman/Stafford/Advance intersection. From roughly 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., road crews worked to lay underground sewer lines across the intersection to connect the future Meridian Creek Middle School with the municipal sewer system.
Although the bulk of intersection construction wrapped Friday, March 24, project lead and Wilsonville Development Engineering Manager Steve Adams said that construction in the area won't end until July.
"The sewer line gets extended down Advance Road so impacts along Advance will continue for the next couple of weeks," Adams said, adding, "The contractor has requested closure of a section of Advance Road, east of Wilsonville Road, from April 30 through the first three weeks of May. So that's going to come up and we'll have some of our message sign boards put out in April forewarning people of that pending closure."
The April closure will be to rebuild large sections of the road that will be torn up during other construction projects related to the school.
"The work in that area goes on into July," Adams said. "Lots of construction work going. I wish the weather was a little bit better, but (contractors are) under a tight deadline to get everything done by July... They're on track."
