Subject: Stadium Site Demolition Work
Dear Tulane Neighbors,As many of you know, the City and Tulane University committed to executing a Tulane Stadium Agreement before any permits would be utilized for the construction of Yulman Stadium. On Friday, January 25 after eight months of work and four community meetings attended by more than 500 neighbors, that agreement was executed (Click here for a copy of the agreement). Shortly thereafter, the university was awarded a demolition permit to prepare the Yulman Stadium site for construction.On Monday, January 28, Woodward Design Build will begin demolition work. This will include:
- Demolition of the practice field bleachers
- Demolition of the score board
- Demolition of the tennis court stands, including bathrooms
- Removal of the turf and track around the existing practice fieldWoodward may also begin the removal and relocation of underground utilities and sidewalks in the stadium footprint this week.All work will take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. If work on the stadium requires after hours or weekend work at any point, we will provide advance notice.Later this week, we will announce a date for a community meeting to discuss construction of the stadium.
