The track at Lebanon High School will undergo renovation this summer after the Lebanon R-3 Board of Education voted 4-0 to approve the new project.

John Kelsh and Sage Acorn from CTS presented the scope and timeline of the LHS track renovation project. The track is in a great deal of disrepair due to significant drainage issues and heavy use over the years.

The Gross Maximum Price (GMP) of the project will cost $991,346.00, and the project will include the following: remove top two inches of existing track, add new asphalt and track with lanes, drainage system (this will address the water runoff from the bleachers), and a new javelin runway.

The track project will be paid for through District facilities operating funds.

The new track will include installation of a new 2" base asphalt surface to address the slope and installation of a new Champion structural spray surface.

On the javelin runway, the CTS group will install 4” of concrete over a 4” aggregate base and establish a Champion black mat and a red structural spray track system along with striping the new runway and backfill around the new runway.

According to the PowerPoint given to the Board, the project was slated to start as early as May 28 and will be completed by August 10, 2019.
