Fort Collins - Work crews are rolling out the green carpet at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, as installation of a new artificial playing surface continues on schedule.
Earlier this week, crews began putting down the FieldTurf surface at the stadium, and work on the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of July. The project began about two months ago, when excavation crews removed the former grass playing surface. Crews dug down several feet, removing bedrock and dirt, and installing two separate drainage system. A subsurface system was installed to continually drain groundwater in the area, which was covered by a composite base and drainage to remove moisture from the playing surface.
Once that portion of the project was finished, crews earlier this week began rolling out the green carpet across the playing field. Installation will also include a mixture of sand and rubber filament for the base.
The finishing touches come at the end of the project, when installers will sew in yard markers, hash marks, team logos and end zone logos. All work figures to be completed by the end of July.
