Work continues at high school athletic facilities

Contractors are completing major improvements to the athletic facilities in the high school area. The work began in April and is now about 90 percent complete, according to Richard Stinson, the town’s public works director. Key elements of the $6.17 million project include the construction of two multipurpose artificial turf fields: Landrigan Field — the high school football field — and Beasley Field, a multipurpose field behind the high school. Other project features include redoing the track, adding a scoreboard, and constructing a parking lot at Beasley Field, as well as building pathways linking the field to the new lot. Other construction work at Landrigan Field includes new bleachers, a combined concession stand and bathroom facility, a new entranceway with two ticket booths in front of it; and two new parking areas. Additionally, the project involves redoing the six high school tennis courts and replacing the floor and bleachers in the high school field house. Stinson said the improvements are being funded through $5.61 million in bonds and $465,000 the town received through an agreement with a developer. The work is expected to be complete by Dec. 1.
