Renovation Updates

Caroline High School Track Re-surfacing
The track re-surfacing design for Caroline High School is scheduled to be completed by May 7 and submitted to the County planning for review. It will be advertised on May 13 in the Caroline Progress, Freelance Star and Richmond Times and Dispatch. The delay in bidding is a result of a 3 week delay in obtaining the survey due to severe and extended winter weather. The bid package will allow interested contractors 14 days to provide a bid for the track project. Bids will be received on May 27 and will be presented to the Caroline School Board for approval at a special called meeting. Once awarded, work will begin on the track beginning June 2 and must be 100% complete by August 1, 2014.

Madison Elementary School Additions
The building design package for Madison Elementary is now approximately 85% complete. There was a 3 week delay in obtaining the survey for the existing property due to severe and extended winter weather. In addition, the purchase of the property, that was anticipated to be complete in April, is not scheduled to be finalized by the County Attorney until mid-May.
