Ramp, stairs added to improve campus safety
A Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS)-commissioned contractor completed the addition of two sets of stairways along the hills behind Blair and a handicap ramp adjacent to the baseball field this week to enhance campus safety conditions and improve access to the baseball field.
Funk claims that the stair additions have been necessary since Blair's move to the corner of Colesville Road and University Blvd. "We've wanted to get [the stairs] for years," he said. "The hill is a hazard - the steps should have been there when the school was built."
The process included numerous talks with MCPS officials to lobby for approval of the project, as well as the necessary funding, according to Funk. He was pleased with the contractor's prompt completion of the additions. "The project moved very quickly," Funk said. "I'm very happy about how efficient it was."
