LOUISA, KY. — Just two months until the traditional start of football and soccer seasons begin, a wrench has been thrown into the mix with work on the $1 million ‘turf’ project stalled because of faulty work, Supt. Dr. Rob Fletcher said today.
Football and Soccer begin at the high school level in August.
Here’s what Fletcher told The Lazer about the situation:
“…I just finished a phone call with the company. Here is what was discussed.”
“There are some sub grade issues that were discovered by the subcontractor responsible for installing the turf. Sprinturf will require the subcontractor who placed the gravel originally to fix the issue by placing a subtile that will provide a more firm foundation.
This protect the field from developing “soft spots” as time passes. According to Sprinturf representative, they will begin that process within the next two weeks. The repair process will require another two weeks. The installation will also require two weeks. Overall, Sprinturf has given us a 6-week timeline to have the project completed.”
“If there are changes and when a solid start date is given, I will let you know as we move forward.”
