Prop. S Update: Morse High Stadium Construction Milestone

Morse Stadium UpgradesRenovations to Morse High School’s stadium complex are 50 percent complete.  The project includes a new 2,100-square-foot building that will house a concession stand/ticket booth and men’s and women’s restrooms.  New concrete (home side) and aluminum (visitor side) bleachers are being installed along with new landscaping, security and field lighting, and a public address system.  More than 300 cubic yards of concrete (30 trucks!) were needed for the stadium stairs and American’s with Disabilities Act ramps. These upgrades complement the new synthetic turf field and rubberized running track that were installed in 2009.  The stadium project is one of several Prop. S projects currently underway at Morse.  Construction on the $7.8 million project started late last year and is scheduled for completion in the fall. Project partners include architect firm Platt/Whitelaw and contractor Soltek Pacific.  For more project information, visit our school facilities projects page at  For media inquiries, contact Cynthia Reed-Porter at or call 619-546-3378.
