Construction crews making great progress on downtown Spokane stadium
SPOKANE, Wash. — The downtown stadium on Boone is starting to take shape, despite dealing with cold weather and supply chain issues.
The construction manager says there are new additions being built on site right now, from concrete floors to steel structures.
“Right now we don’t see any procurement issues coming our way. We worked hard with partners pouring concrete and getting steel,” said Greg Forsyth, Capital Projects Director for Spokane Public Schools.
It’s a project that the community is looking forward to seeing the final product of, which is coming along quickly. Now, they have infrastructure ready for the field and places where fans will be walking through.
“Currently we are constructing locker rooms, our lower kitchen area, some of the infrastructure of the building,” Forsyth said.
In the coming months, building seating and a press box will be underway.
“This coming spring, the Value Village is relocated to the north side of the town,” Forsyth said.
The Value Village across the street will instead be a surface parking lot to accommodate more visitors.
That will also be where the Park and Ride, Spokane Transit’s Park and Ride that used to be located in the north end will be there,” Forsyth said.
Forsyth says the cost of this project has not exceeded the budget yet of $38.7 million.
They are still planning to open the stadium by the end of September, just in time for the upcoming fall high school football season.
