Poor weather in the last couple of weeks combined with the coming of winter has led Geneva School District officials to halt work on the track portion of the new Loman Field Athletic complex. A base layer has been laid down but School Superintendent Trina Newton says two more layers of polyurethane coating are needed and they can’t do it now.
Contractors would restart work in June as not to disrupt the various boys and girls Lacrosse teams and phys ed classes that can use the completed field. Track teams will have to compete elsewhere.
Poor weather in the last couple of weeks combined with the coming of winter has led Geneva School District officials to halt work on the track portion of the new Loman Field Athletic complex. A base layer is in place for the new track but additional layers of polyurethane coating are needed. In a news release the district says ” students will be able to cross the track to use the field; however, it must be crossed with the use of protective mats or a bridge, which the district intends to install.” .
Officials with Campus Construction Management and the district have agreed to restart work next summer to avoid disrupting girls and boys lacrosse . School Superintendent Trina Newton says “We are so disappointed that our track and field team will not be able to use the new track next season. Unfortunately, it was a choice between disrupting both lacrosse and track by beginning construction again in the spring or disrupting only track by beginning construction in the summer.”
