Construction Site Safety

1. DO NOT ENTER THE CONSTRUCTION SITE. Even if you do not see any barrier, do not walk onto any part of the construction site. Do not think that a fence gap is an invitation to take a short-cut. Shook Construction will erect fencing around most of the site and by early August. The entire site will be fenced-in for the next year, but sometimes there may be gaps in the fencing to let trucks and heavy equipment through. Whether you see fencing or not, no one may enter the job site who has not received prior official approval and construction safety training! That includes evenings and weekends when workers are not present. All personnel entering the job site have to wear hardhats, glasses and safety vests. Shook Construction will determine who from the school district is authorized to have job site access. 

2. FOLLOW TEMPORARY STADIUM ENTRANCE INSTRUCTIONS: There is no parking at the stadium until further notice and that includes for any stadium events. There will be designated drop-off points and bus shuttles from the fairgrounds for six major stadium events (Friday night football games and band extravaganza). For non-Friday night football games and soccer matches, parking will be designated along Industrial Parkway. There will be signage for the temporary walk-up entrances to the stadium, but meanwhile, please be observant about the changes. 

3. PAY ATTENTION TO TRUCKS AND TRAFFIC: While most of the construction traffic will enter on Industrial Parkway, as we’ve seen in the past few days sometimes it’s essential to have big trucks entering the main driveway from state route 332 (Scio Rd). Please be attentive to the traffic when you are walking in that area. Please turn off cell phone and take off your headphones, look up and around you and be aware. Please follow the posted directions. 

4. LET THE WORKERS DO THEIR JOBS: All construction workers on this project must wear hardhats, safety glasses, safety boots, and safety vests at all times. They are here to do their jobs. They have strict instructions about not fraternizing with the public, the Carrollton students, faculty, and staff, and we also must reciprocate. 

If you have any concerns about any individual on campus, as always, please report any concerns immediately to any staff member. 

Thank you for your cooperation during the fall of 2018 Community Stadium season and pardon the dust.
