Work on the Hunnewell Fields Softball Renovation project is scheduled to begin the week of October 7, 2019.
Phase I of the project involves the renovation of Lee Field, which is part of the Hunnewell Field athletic area, and improvements to the multi-purpose field nearby.
The project work includes regrading of the field, new drainage, irrigation, an upgraded pathway, new water service, two new dugouts, constructed wetland, fencing, new skin for the infield, a scoreboard, bleachers, landscaping and other incidental work.
The work will be done by M.J. Cataldo, Inc. of Littleton, MA and their subcontractors, under the direction of the Wellesley Department of Public Works. The work is scheduled to be completed in November. Construction will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM to minimize the disruption of normal routines as much as possible.
Please contact the DPW Engineering Division at 781-235-7600, extension 3315.
Project Update: December 2019
Work continues on Lee Field, progressing slightly slower than expected due to rain and snow. The construction of new dugouts will take place throughout the winter, beginning with foundation work, followed by framing, roofing, brickwork, and electrical work. Concrete was poured in late December for the foundation footings for both Dugout #1 and Dugout #2.
Project Update: January 2020
Both dugout foundations have been installed. A tent-like structure has been built around the dugouts to provide heat for the foundation and masonry work in the coming weeks.
Dugout construction is expected to be completed by the end of February 2020.
