Construction continuing at Jim Gotta Stadium in Moorhead
Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - These are anxious times at Moorhead high school, as construction continues at Jim Gotta Stadium.
Here's what it looked like before crews tore up the football field and the track, this was shot back in late April.
And this is what it looks like today, as crews continue to work on this $1.5 million project. The new track will be put in along with new sprint turf on the football field. But, as activities director Dean Haugo says this isn't all about just football and track.
Dean Haugo/Moorhead Activities Director: “The perception of this project initially and we really tried to change the perception of it and the perception was this was a fix or change to the football field. That's not anywhere near the truth. We will have an entirely new track facility out of this. We will have a space where our students can use it for physical education classes all day every day with the exception with the months when there is snow on it. Our soccer teams will now essentially have a new home field and our football field will get a complete renovation. There is a lot of excitement from our students for this project but really comprehensively across our student body.”
