Activities at the Sycamore Valley Park sports fields will be put on hold temporarily while the town of Danville replaces the synthetic turf at the facility.
The project begins June 1 and is expected to take three months. The existing turf is past its useful life and must be replaced. During the project, all natural grass fields will be open.
Town Manager Joe Calabrigo said the town will be doing all that it can to ensure that the fields are ready for use by the end of August.
"These synthetic turf fields are very popular and heavily used by a wide variety of youth and adult sports participants," Calabrigo stated. "We look forward to completing the work this summer and continuing to maintain the highest quality facilities at Sycamore Valley Park, for the use of all of our residents."
Crews will be using some of the parking lot at Sycamore Valley Elementary School as a staging area. Workmen will be cognizant of drop-off and pick-up times at the school and will work to limit any impact on traffic during those times.
The replacement should be completed by Aug. 28.
