An official opening day for Octagon Field is expected soon. In the meantime, we decided to take a look at another project going on. We found repaving of worn out access paths well underway.

Badly rutted pavement leading from Main Street to Octagon Field has been removed, awaits fresh asphalt.

Access from the West Promenade is farther along, but even along Main Street, the broken paving has already been removed. The path looks ready for repaving in time for the field's opening.
