Crews working on the new Elyria Schools sports complex tore down the press box at old Ely Stadium and installed a new one atop the bleachers at the stadium’s new location Wednesday.
Project manager Sean Murphy has assured residents that the new stadium will be ready Aug. 24 when the Pioneer football team takes on Avon Lake for the season opener.
Bricks are available for souvenirs, and have been placed outside the fenced-in area in the parking lot off Middle Avenue. People who stop to pick up bricks are asked to stay in the parking lot and not enter the fenced-in areas, since they are active construction areas.
