Construction Update - Captain Walter Francis Duke Elementary School

Work along the Leonard’s Grant Parkway will begin on or about May 5, 2014 and will last approximately eight weeks. The purpose of the work is to connect the new school to the public water and sewer system located on the parkway near the entrance to Leonard’s Grant. The pedestrian path will be removed along the entire length of the school’s property and will not be available for use until the completion of the work along the parkway.

Work will begin no earlier than 8 a.m. and will end no later than 5 p.m. Monday through Friday only. Vehicles entering or leaving Leonard’s Grant at the work zone will need to use caution during this period. On occasions, flagmen will be directing traffic as necessary. The parkway will not be closed completely at any time. St. Mary’s County Public Schools, our General Contractor, Scheibel Construction, and the Town of Leonardtown are working together to make the work along the parkway as small an inconvenience as possible for the residents and visitors of Leonard’s Grant. St. Mary’s County Public Schools will continue to communicate on construction activities that may impact the residents of Leonard’s Grant.

We encourage all residents to check the web site for Captain Walter Francis Duke Elementary School at http://schools.smcps.org/cwfdes/next-thirty-days for continuing updates.

We thank all involved for their patience in this matter. Work on the school and school site is progressing on schedule and much construction progress on Captain Walter Francis Duke Elementary School will be observed over the coming months.
