March 2, 2020: Construction on the North High Athletic Field project will resume in April 2020, This includes work on the running track, concession building renovation and locker room building.

Bleacher modifications were completed in December.

One note about the contractor for the running track. The contractor is scheduled to be onsite to complete this work June 2020; if there are any delays, whether planned or unplanned (such as late thaw), MPS would have to reschedule according to the contractor’s schedule.

MPS has received a quote from Juxtaposition Arts to create custom graphics for the concession and locker room buildings, which would include engagement sessions with key community stakeholders. The project manager is connecting with North High leadership to ensure students are included in the engagement to share their perspective and input on the custom graphics.
