Legion Track Renewal
I just received the note below from our facilities maintenance department:
The Legion Track resurfacing project is well underway!
The Facility Maintenance Department is landscaping the interior perimeter of the track to address drainage issues, repairing irrigation lines as needed, removing the old rubber crumb track surface and installing the new track surface. We may have the opportunity to install the new long jump pits as well, but this depends heavily on our strict time frame.
Work will continue for approximately 5 – 6 weeks. During this time, access to the track is limited to construction workers and City employees wearing safety vests. There will be one Drillers football game as scheduled on July 7th .
Once the project is complete, vehicles will no longer be allowed on the track for any reason. When crossing the track with mowers, light trucks, tractors etc.. rubber mats will be available to place across the track surface. Any and all vehicles including City vehicles will need to stay on the gravel path on the south side of the track or travel in the grass areas on the exterior perimeter of the track. Please ensure that summer staff without email access are aware of these changes.
Feel free to forward this email to affected user groups throughout the City of Grande Prairie. Thank you for your patience over the next few weeks.
