We are excited about the progress we are making on our new multipurpose stadium under construction just south of the high school! We are currently on track to have the stadium open this Fall!
One of the elements of the stadium is a walking tunnel that runs from the current western high school parking lot underneath Martha Miller Drive to the new stadium. This clever element allows us to utilize the current parking lot for stadium events while providing a safe walking path for all stadium goers.
In order to construct this tunnel, a section of Martha Miller Drive (pka Meacham Drive) will be closed from Tuesday, April 19 through Friday, August 12, 2022. We recognize that this may change some routes and timing for our staff, student drivers and buses.We are working with the City of Pleasant Hill and the D.O.T. to make this as safe and smooth as possible.
Here are some important facts to know about this closure:
