SHERWOOD, Ore–The new Sherwood High School with a price tag of 186 million dollars isn’t the easiest to get to right now. Students using the building for the first time in September will basically be taking there lives in their hands trying to get from Sunset Blvd across 99W to Ewert Road. Don Hamilton with ODOT says, ” There’s a new pedestrian and bike bridge in the works. The state legislature set aside a portion of the money for that. it’s about 4 million dollars. More money will be needed.” This is a city of Sherwood project. The city will need to get a permit from ODOT . ODOT will provide some level of technical support and guidance. 17 hundred students will attend Sherwood High School this year.
