Work on the Hunnewell Field 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. 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 and followed by framing, roofing, brickwork, and electrical work. A tent-like structure will be built around the dugouts to provide heat for the foundation and masonry work in the coming weeks.
Additional project tasks are scheduled for the Spring 2020 and updates will be provided throughout the process.
