MONROE, La. (AP) - Field turf construction at football stadiums in the Monroe City School District has once again hit a snag.

When construction began at Neville, Carroll and Wossman High Schools back in June, it was supposed to be done by the time the teams played their jamborees.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1toYFzL ) now the completion dates for each field have been pushed back even further.

Neville and Carroll are now anticipating a date of Sept. 14, while work at Wossman will wrap up on Sept. 28. The three schools were forced last Tuesday to move their jamborees set for Aug. 29 to Louisiana-Monroe’s Malone Stadium.

To compensate for the delays, Hellas Construction replaced the work crews that had been assigned the project and brought in crews from other completed jobs.
