Parking Lot & Track/Football Field Projects

Saturday, May 6, 2023


Central Lyon Students, Families & Staff,


Starting Monday, May 8, construction crews will begin removing the asphalt from the parking lot at the Activity Center and begin moving dirt near the Track and Football Field. This means parking at the Activity Center will be restricted to South 7th Avenue, along the north of the Activity Center. Please DO NOT PARK in the lot at the Activity Center until notified following the conclusion of construction. Similarly, construction crews will begin moving dirt from Story Street to the visitor bleachers and along the south and east of the track. DO NOT PARK along Story Street so that construction crews can continue their work at the track.
