Contractors tear up wrong school track in Federal Way

A Federal Way contracting company did not start its morning on the right track today — literally.

Workers from Lloyd Enterprises tore up about 15 percent of the synthetic running surface track at Sequoyah Middle School in Federal Way before perplexed school staff stopped them from going any farther, according to Rod Leland, maintenance manager for Federal Way Public Schools.

The workers were supposed to be tearing up track at Saghalie Middle School, but Leland says one manager sent the crew to the wrong school.

“They realized their mistake,” Leland said. “They’re a good local company that’s been here around 50 years, and they reassured us they’ll make us whole.”

For right now, the track may look like a shocking mess, but Leland said it should be fixed in about 30 days.

“Fortunately, it’s the end of the school year — it’s not a major disruption,” Leland said.
