Concrete bollards to be installed at Berlin High School

Concrete bollards to be installed at Berlin High School



The Berlin Town Council unanimously approved a transfer of funding to pay for 16 concrete bollards at Berlin High School.

The concrete will increase overall security and protect the school’s glass-covered main entrance.

The 30-inch bollards will cost about $15,000 in total and be installed by DiCioccio Brothers of Wethersfield. The money was left over from a radio system upgrade.

Similar bollards were installed at McGee Middle School to protect the glass front years ago.

“The high school has a lot of glass in front like the middle school,” said School Superintendent Brian Benigni. “Security has been prevalent based on happenings that have occurred over the years, and the bollards will help with that security.”

While there is no schedule for the installation, Benigni is hopeful the work will happen “within the next few months.”
