Granite Street Softball Field and Concession Stand

Overall Scope of Work:

The new wing of the Portsmouth Middle School project will require much of the Alumni Field area that is used by many city residents and programs and replacement of that field was a condition of lifting the deed restriction. It was decided that the new field would be built on city-owned land at Granite Street. Commencing the summer of 2010 will be the building of a new regulation softball field, concession stand, playing lights, parking, associated fencing, and walkways. The demolition of the existing Wentworth School will be the first order of business in order to make room for the new construction.
