The Wright Field turf is being replaced under warranty by Astroturf. Phase one of this project will include careful removal of the turf, assessment and repair of the underlying elastic layer, and installation of a new turf surface. The timeline for removal and replacement of the turf and associated work is approximately 6 weeks, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of June, 2018.
The scope for phase 2 of the project is not confirmed and will be contingent on funding, but may include items such as enhanced irrigation, modifications to the existing ball containment fence, and new bumper boards around the perimeter of the field. These elements will be scheduled to minimize impact on field use, and will occur in later Summer/Fall 2018.
