Construction Update January 14, 2019

Posted by Amy Higgins on 1/14/2019

Happy New Year! As the weather breaks, the Northwood Campus on Abbe Road, Ely Elementary on Gulf Road, and Hamilton Elementary on Middle Ave. will be hubs of activity.

The underground infrastructures of Ely and Northwood are in place, and Hamilton Elementary will see the same work in the coming months. All three sites are slated to open in 2020-2021.  

AGS/AECOM, the district's Construction Manager, will host a subcontractor "meet and greet" open house on February 19, at 5 p.m., at the Lorain County Urban League, located at 200 Middle Ave., Suite 200. 

Elyria residents interested in construction and in working on the project to build five new school sites in Elyria are encouraged to attend this meeting. Local subcontractors also are urged to attend. 

The plan calls for building five new school facilities in Elyria:

  • Ely Elementary at the existing site of Ely Elementary School on Gulf Road.
  • Hamilton Elementary at the former site of Hamilton School on Middle Ave.
  • Northwood Campus at the former site of Pioneer Soccer Field and Spring Valley School on Abbe Road.
  • Eastern Heights Campus at the existing site of Eastern Heights Middle School.
  • Westwood Campus at the existing site of Crestwood Elementary School on Griswold Road in Elyria Township.

The campuses of Eastern Heights and Westwood are scheduled to open in 2021-2022.
