Culvert installation at the NSC's new field expansion project

Minnesota's continued mild winter has allowed the National Sports Center's (NSC) field expansion project to continue. The NSC is currently building eight new fields on the northeast portion of our campus, between 105th and 109th Ave. NE, just to the east of the existing I, K and M fields. This is the first phase of an eventual 20-field expansion that will bring the NSC's total field inventory to 66 fields.

Today was a big day, as the crew installed a large culvert that will allow the construction of a parking lot access road from the west (Davenport St.) The new road will take traffic over an existing drainage channel to access a new parking lot that will serve the newly built fields.

So we asked our graphic designer Rob Lodge to design this infographic, which presents some of the major milestones, accomplishments and numbers from the past year at the NSC.

We like this so much, you'll probably see this becoming an annual tradition.
