Robert Winovitch, Lake Travis ISD director of facilities and construction presented the board with a change order request regarding the Spillman Loop project totaling $723,000 during a Feb. 19 board meeting. The increase in cost is due to a previous delay in the project’s start date, according to district information.
The Spillman Loop extension project ranging from Spillman Loop to Cavalier Drive includes plans to increase the number of lanes exiting Lake Travis High School from two to four and improve the locations of staff and student parking spaces.
The extension project at Spillman Loop was previously included in the district’s 2019 list of summer projects. However, the project was removed due to timing and pricing issues, according to district information. According to Winovitch, the district has obtained a competitive price for a contract from the construction company Flintco, and construction is scheduled to begin this summer.
Winovitch said the district is happy to continue moving forward with the project’s process.
