ABOUT THE PROJECT

 

If you have driven past the site of the new Chicago Cubs ballpark site at the corner of 8th Street and Dobson Road in Mesa lately, you know that work is underway preparing the old Riverview Golf Course for its new purpose.  Preliminary efforts have focused on tree and plant salvage, earthmoving and grading.  Concrete starts pouring in October and steel begins to go up early next spring.  When complete in December 2013, Mesa and the hometown Chicago Cubs will have a new 15,000 seat ballpark, city park and sports facility that will be the jewel of the community and the Cactus League!

Project Hours and Access
In August and September, work on the project will take place between 6 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
Weekend work may be necessary in August or September to maintain the project schedule, but none is planned at this time.
 
Later phases of the job will require overnight or weekend work. Notices will be sent out well in advance to explain those changes in schedule. Construction traffic is accessing the site from the Riverview Auto Drive entrance off Dobson Road.
Recycled Water Fights Dust
About 35 million gallons of recycled water will be used to control dust on the ballpark site as earthmovers work into November to flatten hills and fill valleys in the old Riverview Golf Course.
 
Besides leveling the land, crews also will dig the main seating bowl for the ballpark.
 
The water for the air quality effort comes from four lakes on the property and Mesa's water reclamation plant nearby.

REUSING TREES, GOLF COURSE SOD SAVE MONEY

Visitors to the new ballpark will walk under trees and stand on earth mixed with old sod from the former golf course site. Dozens of olive, mesquite, pine and oak trees were salvaged from the site before earthwork started and will be replanted as part of the landscaping effort. Likewise, four inches of sod that covered the golf course is being scraped and mixed with dirt to fill in low areas of the job. Both recycling initiatives will reduce costs associated with buying new trees and extra dirt to level the site.
