Ely Field Improvements

About the Project

Construction Start Date: Anticipated End Date:
May 14th No later than August 31, 2018

The City is constructing improvements to Ely Field including: turf renovation, and relocation of the existing bleachers, scoreboard and field goal posts.   We expect this project to be completed within the next 30 days. This timeline is based on favorable weather conditions. During this time, the work zone will be surrounded with orange construction fencing. We ask that while construction takes place, no one enters the work zone so as to maintain the safety of everyone in the community. The stone overflow parking lot will be used as a staging area. We also ask that during this time residents refrain from parking in this lot.
