Longview News Journal: Turf goes down at new Pine Tree sports stadium as deadline nears

Turf goes down at new Pine Tree sports stadium as deadline nears - Longview News-Journal: Local News

Crews have installed turf at the new Pine Tree ISD sports complex, drawing the facility closer to meeting its August deadline for completion.

Workers with Hellas Construction unfurled 24,000 square yards of sod on the field just off East Harrison Road.  School spokeswoman Vickie Echols said the stadium remains on schedule to be open for the 2013-14 school year.

The athletic complex is part of a $29.9 million bond approved by a narrow margin of voters in 2011 that includes a new field house, press box, track and field surfaces, land acquisition for the complex and renovations at other facilities in the district.  The guaranteed maximum price for the projects is $23.9 million, approved by the board in September.
