Safety Upgrades Highlight Summer Bond Project Progress

Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 8/21/2020

The Athey Creek Middle School Track was resurfaced this summer.   Rosemont Ridge Middle School is receiving several safety upgrades this summer.

Thanks to the support of the West Linn-Wilsonville community, several construction projects from the 2019 Capital Bond are wrapping up this summer.

Bond projects include security upgrades at Boones Ferry Primary, Cedaroak Park Primary, Stafford Primary, and Rosemont Ridge Middle School. Secure entryways have been designed and configured at schools throughout the district as we continue to improve safety for students. Entryways are designed to include lockdown hardware in the event of emergencies and better control how and when individuals enter school buildings, funneling all visitors through the main office entrance. Construction is expected to be complete in the coming weeks.

Other 2019 summer bond projects include a new track replacement at Athey Creek Middle School, the installation of new carpet and vinyl flooring for classrooms and support spaces at Stafford Primary, and mechanical replacements and upgrades at West Linn High School and Wood Middle School. Design of air conditioning installation at Bolton Primary, Cedaroak Park Primary, Stafford Primary, and Willamette Primary is also underway, including improvements to other life cycle replacement work. Air conditioning is expected to be added to the district’s remaining schools next summer, 2021. Boones Ferry Primary received several upgrades this summer.

While no construction for the major bond projects outlined in the 2019 Capital Bond is scheduled for the imminent future, planning and design is well underway for many. This summer, the district has held several community engagement meetings for the New Athey Creek Middle School at Dollar Street bond project and the Stadium and Parking Improvement bond project at West Linn High School.
