WATCH VIDEO: Demolition of Foley Field Stadium Begins
Two excavators crushed through concrete and steel Thursday morning.
Demolition of Foley Field's concrete bleachers began early Thursday morning, with crews from Grinnell Recycling crushing the north side of the concrete stadium.
Two excavators chomped through tons of concrete and steel beginning around 10 a.m. and will be working Monday through Friday to complete the project. A third excavator was due to arrive Thursday to help expedite the demolition.
The process, which involves knocking down the stadium then moving the materials off-site for recycling, will take about three to four weeks, according to Grinnel General Manager Bob Lombardo. He estimated it will take between 100 to 150 truck loads to remove the materials, which will likely be recycled by Grinnell.
