Notice anything different? For the past few years there have been portable classrooms in this section of the parking lot, since the new wing is open they are no longer needed and have been removed.
Here's how this part of the parking lot looked earlier this year with the portables still in place.
You can tell exactly where the portables were because the blacktop has square patches where the classrooms were anchored down.
The new sign is now (mostly) done, proudly proclaiming the name of the school. The black rectangle should get an LED variable message sign at some point in the future.
Here's the new classroom wing. The building is ready but there is still work that needs to be done on landscaping, water retention, and paving. Even though the parking lot has been striped, it has not been paved to be even to the curp bottom, another layer of blacktop is still to be added.
I understand that they might not want water going into the water retention areas yet since they are not complete, but it seems like an overkill and more permenant than needed to brick the drainage cuts up.
