Elizabeth Avenue North of BHS Closed Nov. 4 & 5; NS Nevada Avenue Open 

 Monday and Tuesday, November 4 and 5, crews will be digging in a utility line on Elizabeth avenue, north of the auxiliary gym. There will not be any parking on Elizabeth Avenue Monday and Tuesday. School buses will be dropping students off before school in front of the Junior High and picking students up on the east side of Benson High School where there Trades House is built.  There should be no parking in the area around the storage shed and by the receiving room entrance after school on Monday and Tuesday so the buses can get through that area. 

·       NS

o   Street utility work is completed so Nevada Avenue in front of NS is back open. One tile line still needs to be dug in along the front of the school. 

o   Masonry crews are laying blocks in the cafeteria area.   

o   Underground lines have been put in for the preschool space and steel is scheduled to start being put up on Monday. 

o   Demo work has been done on the Bathrooms and entrance. 

o   The plan is to close down the NS kitchen starting March 2nd.  Plans are being made for this transition.  There is much demo work and construction to be done in the kitchen so it is ready for the 20-21 school year.

o   Hopefully the spaces are enclosed in December

·       BHS

o   Footings and footing walls have been poured for the new classrooms and collaborative space.  They have completed backfilling the space.  Next plumbers will be running pipes in the area. 

o   Next week some time, most likely Thursday, door #2 will be closed as crews dig footings for the new secure entrance.  They will then move to the performing arts center to dig footings. 

o   The new sanitary line on the south side of BHS has been completed out to the street.  The plumbers will be connecting the line from the school out to the manhole in the front of the school, most likely next week.  So there will be a brief time when door #1 is closed off for this work.
