Status/Work in Progress

  • The Field Turf crew continues cutting in the field yard markers, striping, endzone "PIEDMONT" lettering, etc.
  • The hardball scoreboard is installed.
  • Installation of the football scoreboard is in process.
  • The LAX net sleeves are installed.
  • The bleacher code compliant handrail work is finished. 
  • The recent heavy rains may have affected the Field Turf completion schedule.  The contractor is looking at options (OT, crew size, weekend work) to speed up the Turf work to avoid delays that could affect the track resurfacing start date of 1/11/24.
  •  If inclement weather occurs during the track resurfacing process it will delay the opening date.

Completion Date Update

The project completion date remains Monday 2/5/24 and is weather dependent.  The public will be informed immediately if/when the completion date is delayed.

Parking Updates

Palm, Park View, upper Winsor - Parking restrictions are back in place January 2nd through January 5th for the synthetic turf sand and infill trucking along with the trucking required to haul away the existing track material.  The contractor will inform when parking restrictions will be needed again on a weekly basis.

El Cerrito - Parking restrictions remain lifted until further notice.

As a reminder, parking restrictions have been needed to assure emergency vehicle egress during construction hours. This is per the City of Piedmont Fire Department request.

Winsor Driveway Gate Closure
The pedestrian access gate on the Winsor Avenue driveway, which many residents use to access the Piedmont Park off-leash dog area, will be closed for your safety during working hours Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 4pm.  The gate will be locked and chained during those periods.  Please respect this closure since construction activity on the driveway could pose a safety hazard to pedestrians and dogs.

We will keep the gate open for pedestrian access to the off-leash dog area outside of working hours and on weekends.  Please email Pete Palmer if the gate is chained outside of designated working hours.

Drainage Calculations
A 54 page City approved encroachment permit and Verde storm water report was issued on 8/25/23. 

Per the City’s request, PUSD has reduced the peak flow rate for the Witter Field area by approximately 20%, largely by detaining the water from storm events in the subsurface piping and rock drainage profile.

The District remains committed to providing regular updates to the community regarding the Witter Field renovation.  We understand that construction is inconvenient, and disruptive and appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and cooperation as we complete this important project.
