UPDATED Aug. 22: The renovation of Hurd Field began Monday, Aug. 22.
According to the town of Arlington, the project will require the restriction of access through the field and closing part of the parking lot.
Pedestrian and bicycle access will be through the Arlington Reservoir path/Drake Village connection. Signs will be in place to help direct proper use. Read more here >>
The majority of the renovation project is expected to be completed in the fall, town officials say -- but the entire area will not be open until some time in spring 2023, depending on the field conditions at that time.
The town's Park and Recreation Commission had previously received Community Preservation Act funding to renovate Hurd Field and contracted with Stantec, an international professional company in the design and consulting industry, for the design and construction oversight.
Public-input sessions were held Sept. 21, 2021, and Oct. 21, 2021, to solicit feedback from the community. Final design has been approved, and the project has been approved by the town's Conservation Commission.
