Field Update: August 8, 2016

The construction of the new turf field at Somerset Elementary is currently underway. The design of the new field requires a concrete curb to be installed around the perimeter. Progress was made on all four sides of the perimeter during this past week!

School Side Aug 8 2016
On the west side of the field (the school side), a new sidewalk was installed to improve accessibility, as well as a trench drain to improve stormwater management.
Drummond Side Trench Drain Aug 8 2016
On the north side of the field, the concrete curb also includes a trench drain to improve drainage.
East Side Aug 8 2016
On the east side which runs along Deal Place, a wider curb with a six inch lip was installed, as well as new fence posts for the 12 foot fence that will be installed along this side.
South Side Aug 8 2016
On the south side of the field, the curb will be installed to form the forth side of the perimeter. There will also be a new 6 foot fence on this side of the new field.

As construction will still be in progress at the start of the 2016-2017 school year, please keep a lookout for information on drop-off procedures, etc. If all goes smoothly, the construction will only impact the first few weeks of school. And then we will have our brand new field!

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email [email protected]. This email will be monitored by the Somerset Foundation and the PTA. We will answer questions as quickly as possible.
