Work in Progress

  • Perimeter trench drains and D-ring curbs/foundations poured
  • Goal post foundations, pole vault pit installed this week
  • Class 2 baserock trucked in Thursday 11/9 or Friday 11/10

Completion Date Update

Moved to Monday 2/5/24, weather dependent. There were several factors contributing to the delay along with our contractor being unable to complete critical path tasks such as the D ring foundations and the trench drain installation concurrently. Our facilities team will continue to push for an earlier completion date.

Parking Updates

Palm, Park View, upper Winsor - Parking restrictions will remain in place on Palm, upper Winsor, and parts of Park View due to the start of the class 2 baserock infill ( approx. 220 loads). These restrictions will need to remain in place for ~two weeks.

El Cerrito - Parking restrictions remain lifted on El Cerrito but will need to be reinstated Thursday 11/9 through Tuesday 11/14.  No parking signs will be placed on El Cerrito Wed, 11/8.  The restrictions are needed to accommodate the drill rig and delivery trucks for the installation of the football scoreboard foundation and steel columns.

Winsor Driveway Gate Closure
The pedestrian access gate on the Winsor Avenue driveway, which many residents use to access the Piedmont Park off-leash dog area, will be closed for your safety during working hours Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 4pm.  The gate will be locked and chained during those periods.  Please respect this closure since construction activity on the driveway could pose a safety hazard to pedestrians and dogs.

We will keep the gate open for pedestrian access to the off-leash dog area outside of working hours and on weekends.  Please email Pete Palmer if the gate is chained outside of designated working hours.


Drainage Calculations
A 54 page City approved encroachment permit and Verde storm water report was issued on 8/25/23.  Per the City’s request, PUSD has reduced the peak flow rate for the Witter Field area by approximately 20%, largely by detaining the water from storm events in the subsurface piping and rock drainage profile.

The District remains committed to providing regular updates to the community regarding the Witter Field renovation.  We understand that construction is inconvenient, and disruptive and appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and cooperation as we complete this important project.
