Turf Removal Wide

Turf Comes Up

NORMAN – The first visibly prominent step in the building project at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium was taken Monday, as crews removed practice field turf south of the Barry Switzer Center.

While the project has been under way since receiving University of Oklahoma Board of Regents approval in March, the turf removal serves a milestone. Monday’s work marks a clear visual delineation of old and new, and reminds every one that comes through that the $160-million renovation is moving forward.
