The Lewisville ISD board of trustees approved several renovation projects and upgrades at its June 14 meeting that will be funded as part of the $737.55 million bond package approved in 2017.

One project involves outdoor track replacements at Creek Valley, Durham and Lakeview middle schools. The project is within budget and will cost a maximum of $637,790, according to district documents. The board expects construction to happen this summer.

Another project approved calls for stadium turf replacements at Flower Mound, Hebron and The Colony high schools. These replacements total more than $3.4 million. An extra $257,973 will go to The Colony High School to level its football field ground to its adjacent track in response to safety concerns for student athletes, district documents state. The project is expected to be completed by Aug. 15.

Lewisville ISD will also be expanding parking this summer for special education offices at Central Elementary. The project is estimated to cost $157,671.
