New Reiche Ramps Could Cost $200G

A preliminary engineering test done on the Reiche School ramps in mid-August were not encouraging, according to school officials. Final results of the test are expected this week.

If workers can stabilize the corrosion and resurface the ramps, it will cost between $50,000 and $100,000, according to School Department estimates. If the ramps must be torn down, the project would be postponed until next summer, and would require installation of handicap access to the second floor - probably an elevator - with a combined cost of at least $200,000.

The fact that Reiche is high on the State priority list might affect how the School Department would make a decision on the proposed renovation.
