Stadium renovation ahead of schedule

by PHILLIP WILLIAMS




The $1.8 million renovation of Buckeye Stadium is “progressing well” without major problems, the project manager told the Gilmer School Board on Monday night.

Brent Bishop of WRL General Contractors, Ltd. of Flint, which is construction manager for the renovation, said the overall project is on track to use the stadium for Gilmer High School graduation ceremonies in June, although the new 2-story press box won’t be completed until early or mid-summer.

The stadium’s home side total seating is being expanded from its past 1,800 to slightly more than 2,900, and the number of orange chairback seats there is being enlarged from the past 600 to about 1,000, said School Supt. Rick Albritton. Many seats will have rail backs.
