He told the City Council Tuesday night, crews are currently laying a gravel base on the field and then will work will begin on installing the artificial turf. Weidner says parking will also be an issue during the first few games until the new paved parking lot in ready for use. He says area streets will have to accommodate a lot of traffic and local schools are supposed to be working on plans to find ways to shuttle athletes, fans and others into the field as well.
