The renovation and reconstruction of the Harry Jerome Track and Max Clunie Field in Prince Albert is well underway and is scheduled to be completed on time.

Work on the project began immediately after the end of the high school football season in mid-October, when crews dug the field and irrigation systems.

“They were able to dig it out and put the first layer of drainage rock and a drainage system underneath,” explained Mike Hurd, facilities manager for the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division. “At this point, the soccer field is almost ready for turf.”

“We removed the old asphalt and rubber from the track and they dug down a couple of feet and put in a layer of gravel and rebuilt the whole thing,” he continued. “There's a concrete curve that goes around the inside of the track that needs to be done and then two layers of asphalt. Hopefully that will be ready for the asphalt by the middle or end of next week.”
