A series of multimillion-dollar construction projects at Vacaville High will begin in earnest just days after the Class of 2016 graduates, Principal Ed Santopadre said Monday.
Funded under Measure A, expansion of the school’s student parking lot, plus a new visitors lot, and the relocation of tennis courts likely will begin June 7, three days after commencement, he said.
Those projects, estimated to cost some $5 million, according to a Vacaville Unified project list, will be completed in early August, in time for the new academic year at the 100 W. Monte Vista Ave. campus, said Santopadre.
He said plans are to add some 60 student parking spaces, in an area where the school’s existing tennis courts are, and some 12 visitor spaces just a few steps from the main office. Eight new tennis courts will be moved to an area just east of the existing courts, which are adjacent to Zunino Stadium.
