BUSD awards Santa Fe Paving contract for work at Sullivan Middle School


Last updated 8/20/2017 at Noon

Santa Fe Paving was given the Bonsall Unified School District (BUSD) contract for asphalt paving work at Sullivan Middle School.

A 4-0 BUSD board vote June 15, with Lou Riddle absent, authorized a $14,995 contract for the Fallbrook company to provide the work which will improve student safety and accessibility.

"The asphalt needs a little work," said Justin Cunningham, who was the BUSD superintendent prior to his retirement July 31.

One of the areas slated for paving was the southeast end of the running track. The slope from the fire lane to the track was paved other than approximately 700 square feet of area near the water meter and backflow prevention valves. That area is in the flow path for water which drains from the track to a storm drain, so the lack of paving resulted in dirt from the track being washed into the storm drain and also onto the surrounding paved area.

The dirt in the storm drain put the district at risk of being cited for a water quality violation while the dirt on the paved area made that portion slippery. Although students have slipped on that surface, no serious accidents had occurred.

The dirt area between the portable buildings for sixth-grade students and special education classrooms 28 and 29 sloped directly into the sidewalk area of classroom 29. That caused flooding of the sidewalk, which hindered access to both classrooms along with the adjoining restrooms while also making that pathway unsafe.

The paving will allow water to flow towards an existing drain inlet on the west side of the area, which will improve safety on the sidewalk while also keeping the classrooms free of water and debris.
