Sinkhole forms at Memorial Stadium

Brandon Foltz

While construction on Memorial Stadium’s North Endzone Project is ongoing, the heavy rains from Wednesday’s storm have created a sinkhole near the south end zone. \nJust past the south end zone the field sinks down as deep as about two feet. The sunken area extends from the edge of the track where the turf begins to back of the end zone, ranging approximately 10 to 15 feet long and about seven feet wide.\nThe AstroPlay turf field at Memorial Stadium is made of polyethylene and was installed in 2003 by SRI Sports of Austin, Texas.
