Sussex Technical High School will undergo multiple improvements this summer, including replacing a leaking roof, fixing a parking lot drainage system and resurfacing the currently unusable track
Just over $500,000 of work was recently approved by the district board of education. “These are long-overdue investments needed to keep our building and grounds in proper working order,” said Superintendent Kevin Carson. The projects include:
• Replacing the roof of the 700 wing, which dates back to its original construction in 1961. The contract was awarded to TA Roofing and Waterproofing.
• Repairing a section of failed drainage system under the main bus parking lot, which led to a partial collapse several years ago. The contract was awarded to Thompson & Sons Contracting.
• Resurfacing of the high school track, believed to be the first major improvement for the track. The contract was awarded to American Athletic Track and Turf.
