Under construction

Lamar Consolidated assistant football coach George Fenske works with the quarterbacks Monday during the Mustangs’ first summer strength and conditioning workout in the shadow of the construction being done to Traylor Stadium.

The Lamar Consolidated ISD board of trustees is expected to hear a report on how the renovations are going at Traylor Stadium this week.

The report is expected to happen on Tuesday’s board workshop at 6:30 p.m. at the LCISD administrative building at Brazos Crossing, 3911 Ave. I in Rosenberg.

Traylor Stadium is currently undergoing renovations to the press box area, expanding it to a two-story building. The stadium’s turf will also be replaced.

In April, the steel erection was completed and masonry had begun on the stadium.

The renovations are expected to be finished in August, in time before football season begins.

It is part of the 2017 bond that led to the installation of turf at all five high schools’ football/soccer fields and track replacements. The bond also paid for improvements to the baseball and softball fields at Foster High School. All of those projects are expected to be completed in July.

The bond also will help build Randle High School and Wright Junior High School, which are on schedule to be ready for the 2021-22 school year.

The stadium renovations were expected to cost over $4.4 million, but as of last month, only $4.3 million has been committed to the project, with over $88,000 left in the budget.

The board will also look to approve a competitive sealed proposal for renovations to the historic gymnasium at Jane Long Elementary School.
