Track and Soccer Facility on schedule for Fall completion

Jul 12, 2019

The Pratt Community College Track and Soccer Facility construction is well underway. At the complex site, located east of Green Sports Complex at East 6th Street and Fincham Street, workers attached stadium lights to the tops of poles last week. Crews have installed the four light poles for the facility. The bulk of the dirt work is complete but there will be more fine dirt work done before the track and other facilities take shape, according to Pratt Community College President Michael Calvert.

Other construction planned or underway at the site includes footings for the concession stand, restroom and concession slab placed on the grade, start masonry if slab is cured, final field stabilization work, digging and setting the lift station structures.

To meet National Junior College Athletic Association requirements, an aluminum rail was added inside the track at a cost of $34,000. The projected cost of the complex is $3.5 million, said Kent Adams, PCC vice president of finance and operations.

A hammer throw cage to protect the athletes, officials and spectators, Adams said. The site is projected to open before the end of the year.
