High school expansion in second phase


The renovation and expansion of the high school is now about 75 percent complete, according to Town Manager Wayne P. Marquis. The $70.9 million project recently entered its second phase. It includes the construction of a new section that will house the cafeteria, a new main entranceway, and offices for the guidance and special education staff and the school and central district administrations. Completed work includes the renovation and expansion of the auditorium, renovation of the field house, renovation of an academic wing, construction of the three-story science wing, and demolition of the old Dunn Wing, which had been serving as swing space during the first phase of construction. Marquis said the concrete slabs have all been poured and are in place, and the steel erected, for Phase 2. Some of the interior sheetrock walls have also been installed and initial painting has been done. Exterior brick panels are also being put in place. The project is on schedule to be completed in July, in time for the opening of school in September, Marquis said.
