Jackson track replacement

Jackson’s Kate Brigham leads the way in the 1600 meter run during the 2019 Lynn Williams Invitational at William T. McIntosh Stadium. The track at the stadium will be replaced this summer.

William T. McIntosh Stadium is getting a new track. 

Last week, the Teton County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees approved a contract with Field Turf, the company that is also replacing the synthetic fields, to remove and replace the running track that rings the football field. It will, however, come in a bit over budget.

The district had estimated it would cost about $250,000, but increased materials and labor costs, combined with some serious tree root removal that is needed, pushed the price tag to around $320,000. 

Facilities Manager Deanna Harger told the school board that the estimated completion date was Aug. 30.
