Several improvement projects are taking place at Lead-Deadwood schools this summer, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The total cost of the renovation projects totals approximately $213,000.
The Lead-Deadwood High School received a private donation from an alum which funded a sandstone project for $21,000. The sandstone had deteriorated over time due to contact with salt. A special coating was placed on the sandstone to help protect the surface. Cracks and tuckpointing were also sealed during the renovation.
Additional renovations for the high school include stair replacement for an estimated $67,000, fire alarm replacement for $48,000 and recarpeting the business office for $4,500.
