Track Project Near Completion After Solution for Divots Reached

The contractor and school district have reached an agreement on fixing the Randy Wilson Track at Knoxville High School. The contractor laid down new rubber last month and was responsible for securing the track as it dried. However, a couple people got over the snow fence that was put up and rode their bikes on the track, leaving deep marks in the rubber. The School Board initially said they wanted the contractor to relay the track, citing the fact that the project cost more than $600,000 and they wanted to do it right. The contractor eventually proposed a type of spray made with rubber and polyurethane that will fill the divots in a way that will make them unnoticeable and makes the track stable.
