When will construction activities begin?

Construction activities will begin in April 2022. During the April school vacation, temporary construction fencing will be placed on the western portion of the site where the playing fields currently are located. Also, at this time, a contractor access road will be built on the northern portion of the site where construction vehicles will enter and exit the site from Beacon Street. From this time until the end of the school year, preliminary site preparation work will take place.

Immediately following the end of the school year in June 2022, full construction activities will begin.
