Work nearing completion at Spotsylvania High School entrances

UPDATE: I’ll have a story in Monday’s Free Lance-Star and at with details of how this project is coming along.

Spotsylvania High School Principal Rusty Davis is pleased with the progress being made at the entrances to the county school, he said this morning.

Revisions to the main entrance at Spotsylvania High School are nearly finished. Guard rails have been installed and the grade has been reduced, plus a drain has been installed beneath the entrance that leads to the school’s front parking lot.

Work on Lake Anna Parkway had left a steep grade at the main entrance and had made a mess when school opened in August.

The steep grade had raised safety concerns that the Virginia Department of Transportation has been addressing with its contractor.

The area now has grass covering what once was a muddy area.

Striping is still needed at the main entrance and work remains to be done at what the school calls the “athletic entrance.” That entrance also is the entrance for Post Oak Middle School.

Davis did not have a date for when all of the work will be finished.
