Construction by the Stirling High School should be wrapped up by the end of this week.
The Village of Stirling has been completing phase one of replacing and upgrading deep utilities such as water supply lines and sanitary sewers in front of the school. The road has been based, and the village will treat it like a gravel road over the winter.
“It will just be like another gravel road,” said Shane Still, manager of operations for Stirling. “That allows for more settling throughout the year. So, you’re not going to get any dimple or any divots or anything, so it allows for the settling process, and we’ll deal with it just like we’ll deal with a gravel road; keep our blades up in winter and make sure the snow is away from there.”
The village had also ran storm sewers through the area as part of phase one, to help the school drain better.
The second phase, the final paving, is scheduled to be tendered out in February 2021, with work planned to go in summer 2021.
“I think we’re going in the right direction as far starting to focus our efforts on underground infrastructure and replacement of it, which is of vital importance to the Village of Stirling going forward for growth.”
