Bond projects making progress in Lowell

Contractors at TowerPinkster have been busy at Lowell schools this fall, making progress on the bond projects passed by voters in 2019.

At Lowell Middle School, exterior foundations and footings are being poured for the addition on the west end of the school and interior wall footings are starting to go up. Workers have also cut into the masonry around the band room door in preparation for future demolition to connect the addition to the existing building. 

The two-story addition will add classrooms and collaboration spaces for project-based learning. 

At Alto Elementary School, construction to add five additional classrooms to the building is nearly complete. 

Voters approved the $52.1 million bond in May 2019 to fund infrastructure upgrades and improvements. Other projects addressed in the bond include improved parent drop-off and bus circulation at the middle school and Murray Lake Elementary, outdoor athletic improvements and updated technology and furnishings.
