Tracking the progress at Memorial Stadium
It's now been a full week since construction began to remove the track from around the playing surface at Memorial Stadium and, as you'll see in the photos below, the crews in charge of doing the work have made significant progress.
The old track was removed quickly last on June 25 and it now appears that they're prepping the ground beneath where the track was for years for new turf and asphalt.
We'll continue to track the progress periodically during the process, which is expected to take another five weeks and be completed for the start of KU football's fall camp, which begins Aug. 8.
