Lake Travis ISD is making progress on its second high school and several other bond projects after the board of trustees approved a construction manager and contractor at a Jan. 17 meeting.

American Constructors will complete work on High School No. 2, Lakeway Elementary, Rough Hollow Elementary and Lake Travis High School using voter-approved funds from the district’s 2022 bond election.

Current situation

Following board approval, American Constructors will clear the land for High School No. 2 and work on design, permitting and preparing for construction, said Marco Alvarado, the district’s executive director of communications and community relations.

The district expects to break ground on High School No. 2 in the spring or summer of 2025, he said. The school is slated to open in August 2027 off Hwy. 71, southwest of the West Cypress Hills neighborhood.

VLK Architects is working on the design for High School No. 2 and will begin designing stadium facilities voters approved in November, Alvarado said. District officials hope to receive school renderings later this spring or early this summer, he said.

The​​ $219.2 million school and athletic facilities are funded by 2022 and 2023 bonds.
