Lots of progress has been made in the construction of Smith-Cotton Stadium at Jennie Jaynes Complex, the multi-use facility being erected behind Smith-Cotton High School. Project Manager Dennis Paul, of Septagon, said “excellent progress has been made over the past month.” Structural steel for the home locker room is in process, and slabs for the lower level are 90 percent complete. Progress is being made on the track and visitors locker room building’s masonry and concrete work.
The concrete portion of the home bleachers is expected to be poured in mid August, which is when the field turf and aluminum bleachers are scheduled to be delivered. The project is still three weeks behind the original schedule, but recent weather has been favorable and the next three weeks are seen as a crucial period to on-time completion.
