This week, our intrepid construction crew has been installing a silt fence for erosion control, as well as other erosion control devices. They have also installed a construction entrance for the trucks and equipment to access their work site. Crews are also working to divert existing water and sewer lines beneath the construction area.
The entrance and exit from the construction site is located at the bottom of the upper carline loop, by the main building. We ask for all parents, caregivers, and visitors to our campus to be vigilant and alert when exiting the upper driveway because of these construction vehicles, which may not have a clear view of cars pulling through the driveway.
The students on campus are particularly aware of one safety feature added to our campus this week: safety fences outside the current construction barrier. Workers erected these around the pecan tree by the main carline loop, in front of UE1’s outdoor environment, and around the climbing tree to the left of the main building. These fences make it clear to our construction team that these areas are to be kept safe during the construction process, since the construction site will eventually expand to eclipse the entire upper parking lot.
