Preliminary Capital Levy Projects Schedule

Projects set to break ground this spring as WWPS announces preliminary Capital Levy projects schedule

Look for contractors and heavy equipment on the south side of Walla Walla High School in the coming months as work is slated to begin later this spring on projects soundly approved by voters on the Feb. 13, 2024 Capital Levy measure. The first improvements to get underway are the new tennis courts and JROTC Raider Course at Walla Walla High School, located south of the main gym. These projects are targeted for completion by late fall 2024.

“We’re hitting the ground running on delivering on the promises we made to voters,” said Superintendent Dr. Wade Smith. “We have met with our coaches and administrative staff to finalize our construction schedule and feel confident we’ll have everything in place to get started as soon as this spring.” The project schedule includes intentional phasing to avoid program interruptions, while also addressing necessary bidding and product procurement timelines.”

The lighting project for baseball and softball at Murr Field is slated to begin in the fall and be completed prior to the spring season. Garrison Middle School track resurfacing and tennis court improvements will also begin this fall after the fair with plans to complete it by the spring sports season as well. The improvements to Hayner Field, on the west side of the Wa-Hi campus, will kick off after the fall soccer season wraps up next school year. This area, which currently hosts varsity soccer, will get lights, field turf and a field house and serve multiple sports when completed. This extensive project is expected to be finished prior to the fall 2025 sports season. The all-weather track and baseball/softball improvements at Pioneer Middle School will begin in winter 2025 and will also be completed by fall 2025. The multi-sport complex at Walla Walla High School will begin following the 2025 track season. This facility will get lights, field turf, grand stands, a safer throwing area for track, concession stands, restrooms and a changing area for athletes. It is slated to be complete by the start of the 2026-27 school year.

“We have an ambitious schedule that will require a lot of planning and communication,” said Superintendent Smith. “We will work closely with our coaches, staff, students and families to make sure we minimize the impact to programs as we complete these historic improvements.”

A comprehensive website is being built to house all of the information regarding the Capital Levy projects. The district is committed to ensuring open and transparent communications throughout the construction program.

“We are so thankful to the community for making these projects become a reality for our students, faculty and families,” said Superintendent Smith. “We will continue to be great stewards of our community’s resources to ensure we deliver on every promise made to voters.”
