Students of Franklin School K-8 in Corvallis completed a major project to improve their school. Through community and family support, students were able to raise funds for a walking trail around their field. Foundation Engineering was proud to take part in the construction of the trail.
The Franklin School PTA raised the money to cover the cost of the excavation, hauling, geotextile fabric, crushed rock, and two days of the equipment/operators from MVG Construction.
Volunteers spread the crushed rock over the geotextile fabric, leveling out the piles. Once long sections were hand-leveled and gaps filled in, the vibratory drum roller would compact the crushed rock along the path into a smoother surface.
September 10th, the trail was officially opened for students!
