8.30 Update

Posted by Amy LeJeune on 8/30/2023

Installation of the turf carpet is nearly complete with Sprinturf currently working on sewing in inlays.  Installation of rubber and sand infill is scheduled to begin this Friday, one day earlier than anticipated on the most recent schedule, and is expected to be complete by the end of next week. 

We have had a few inquiries from neighbors about work hours and have reminded Sprinturf that in accordance with Manchester’s noise ordinances, use of heavy noise-producing equipment must be limited to Monday-Saturday between the hours of 8am and 6pm.  Because infill installation does require use of equipment, work on the project will be paused on Sunday and for Labor Day Monday, in keeping with these regulations.  This pause was already reflected on the most recent project schedule.  At this point, Sprinturf is still expecting to complete installation of Hyland field by the end of next week, also in keeping with the current schedule. 

Initiation of work at Brook Street field is still scheduled to begin immediately after Hyland field is complete, subject to receipt of final PFAS testing.  Sprinturf has indicated that these results are due back by 9/8.
