Despite rain delays, Luke Jensen Sports Park coming into shape

Since breaking ground in April, the Luke Jensen Sports Park construction is on schedule despite the biggest problem: rain. The soil has to be flattened for the turf. When it gets soaked, the soil must be plowed. Then it needs to air dry and be re-compacted to the original flattened state. Doing this numerous times causes delays. Elizabeth Jordan, parks capital program manager said it’s been difficult to move forward.
