New Parking Lot Complete at Crater High School

The Central Point School District is proud to announce the completion of one of its first projects funded by the 2019 Bond: paving, grading, and lighting the Crater High School Parking lot.

“For years the unpaved lot has been a problem with potholes, poor drainage, and access issues. During the bond development process the paving of the lot consistently arose as an important priority project for our community” said Spencer Davenport Chief Projects Officer.

The district began the $2 million dollar project in the spring of 2020. The newly paved parking lot will include over 400 parking spaces, ADA compliant ramps, and sidewalks, lighting, planting strips, and stormwater drainage. Local contractors and firms led the construction effort including:

  • General Contractor: Knife River Materials (Central Point)
  • Architect: BBT Architects (Bend)
  • Electrical Engineer: ArcSine Engineering (Medford)
  • Civil Engineer: Powell Engineering (Medford)
  • Landscape Design: Kerry KenCairn (Ashland)

“Despite the multitude of challenges faced in 2020 we are happy to announce the completion of Crater’s new parking lot. Students, staff and community members will now be able to move safely through the parking lot, ” said D6 Superintendent Samantha Steele.
