Lake Stevens sets schedule for stadium
Planning for the Lake Stevens High School stadium project is under way and a new schedule has been set.
Construction bids are expected to go out in the summer of 2009. Demolition of the current stadium and construction of a new stadium is scheduled to begin after the 2009 LSHS football season concludes.
The original planning and construction schedule for the stadium was set for the winter of 2010 with completion in 2011. The current schedule will have the new facility completed by the summer of 2010.
This summer the district explored moving the stadium project up a year to begin demolition this winter. However, due to time constraints and financial schedules, the project was kept on the 2010 completion time line.
The new stadium should include covered seating for 2,500, adequate restrooms and storage space, new concessions area, a new press box and additional parking.
