November track progress

November 8:
The plan was to have the track surface installed during the week of October 30, but the rainy weather combined with cold temperatures overnight are going to prevent this final step from happening until the spring. This is a disappointing setback; we anticipated the track would be ready to go for the start of track practices in March. As soon as we get some sustained warm temperatures in March or April, the track surface will go down and we'll be ready to host.

In the early part of May, contractors are cutting the site to the grade necessary to build the track. Work is also beginning on the construction of the restrooms and concessions building that will be adjacent to the bleachers once the work is complete.

During the weeks of April 24 and May 1, contractors are tying in water and sanitary lines, installing new manhole structures, and working through the process of screening the topsoil removed from the existing field and moving it off the field to our temporary storage location to the north.

During the week of April 10, we will take advantage of the better weather to continue stripping topsoil, removing material, and begin investigating underground electrical conduit routing for the concession stand.

The next phase, beginning as early as the week of April 3, will be to begin stripping topsoil from the existing field. This work is weather dependent, and may be delayed by rain.
