Central Transportation

  • Transportation Master Plan work is planned for the Central Transportation Yard. 

    In 2019-2020, the district completed a Transportation Master Plan for all three district transportation sites. The purpose of the report was to identify short- and long-term needs for the transportation department due to a growing community and student population that has resulted in the construction of new schools with more new schools opening, the latest being JWood Raw Elementary School. Bus parking, staff parking, infrastructure and equipment were identified as being at or above capacity and out living their useful life.

    On June 28, 2022, the WCSD Board of Trustees approved the Agreement to Provide Professional Architectural Service for Collaborative Design Studio for the Central Transportation Yard Modernization Project in the amount of $1,969,887. Collaborative Design Studio is designing the Central Transportation Yard Modernization Project. This work includes architecture and engineering documents for permitting and construction. Design began in July 2022 and is expected to culminate for this 3-phase project in December 2023.   

    In December 2023, drawings will be submitted for permit. The bid process is expected in March-April 2024. We expect to begin construction in June 2024 with completion of the project in fall/winter 2026.
