Superintendent of the Mansfield school district Brenda Hodges said that the capital improvements slated for this summer are moving along on schedule.
Firstly, Hodges said that the track and field complex at Mansfield High School is currently undergoing repairs and renovations. The job is under construction through Quick Construction and started on June 18.
Dave Quirck, of the company of the same name, told Hodges and business directory of schools Edward Vozzella that there are no problems so far and the project should be completed well ahead of the start of the school year.
MHS's cracked gym wall was analyzed by Maguire Group, the engineering company that designed the wall, and said that the damage will not require as big of a repair job as initially estimated. Vozzella said that the wall is only cracked on the exterior portion, which is made of cinderblocks, and the interior portion of the wall was not damged. Vozzella said the repair estimates went down from the initial $600,000 budgeted from free cash in this year's budget.
"It won't be that high because it's not as bad as we thought," Hodges said.
Bis have started for the Robinson School window replacement project.
