Last month Bridgeport City Manager, Kim Haws said they are 90 percent complete with moving dirt so that construction can start on new Indoor Recreation Complex.
Some problems have come up due to the wet spring and winter slowing the progress down a bit. Council hopes that all the moving of dirt will be complete soon.
On Tuesday night, council met with Omni Associates to go over a final look at the design of the building that included colors, fabrics, and even carpets that will be in the new complex. Finalization of the design will happen and that will allow construction can begin on the Bridgeport Indoor Recreation complex in May.
“The actual building site is pretty much done so it is not going to hold anything up. The way the schedule is right now we’re going to look at February, we’re going to finish up looking at the design of the building, they’ll start finalizing the actual the actual plan, the contractors will use to bid with sometime around the first of March,” said Andy Lang, Mayor of Bridgeport.
Council’s hope is that this complex creates a destination location for people to visit Bridgeport and see all the opportunities and the potential of the area. The last phase council has to take care of is the form of management, council said they have discussed it along the way through the project.
