Construction update presented— OABCIG board discusses back to school plan, class sizes, in-town busing, construction

The OABCIG School Board held lengthy discussions on the district’s back to school plan, class sizes and in-town busing during its meeting July 13.
Estes Construction project manager Erik Johansen and Chad West of Haila Architects gave updates on the high school construction project. Johnson said, due to poor soils, the site is being over excavated to compact the soils. Foundation work will begin this week. He said some electrical and demolition work has begun on the interior.
West said, “The progress is coming along pretty well. There is a lot of earth work being done right now.”
