Site tests at Richardson Stadium

From Tuesday, February 17 to Tuesday, February 24 work crews will be on West Campus drilling boreholes at the Richardson Stadium site.

Approximately 30 boreholes will be made at various locations around the site. The boreholes are used to determine bedrock depth, gather soil samples, and confirm soil density.

This work is standard practice for large construction projects and is being done well in advance of the construction of the stadium itself, which is not slated to begin until fall 2015.

The work will be done during daytime work hours and is not expected to be disruptive to those nearby.

Anyone with questions about the site work can contact Physical Plant Services’ FixIt desk at 613-533-6075.
