Bishop Stadium

Project Description

Schwab Eaton worked with the Manhattan School District to improve track and field facilities at Bishop Stadium. The track surface and field facilities were outdated and in need of serious repair. Although the existing running surface was worn, it maintained a tight bond with the underlying asphalt. The decision was made to leave it in place and encapsulate it with a bonding agent. The new surface was then applied. Major improvements included an eight-lane synthetic surface 400-meter track with chutes at each end of the main straightaway, a shot put sector, an enlarged high jump area, two long-jump/triple jump runways with pits at each end, and a central pole vault pad with both north and south runways. Additional improvements were made with a storm drainage system for the new pole vault and long/triple jump areas.
