LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — Work continues on the refurbishing of the Moore County High School football stadium.

While there’s still plenty to do, especially on the home side of the stadium, the visitor’s side has gone up rather quickly. Once the old bleachers were removed, a new concrete pad was poured to support a 500-seat aluminum bleacher structure.

That structure arrived last week and contractors were putting the finishing touches on that side of the stadium this week.

The new visitor’s bleachers are raised for better viewing, have steps on one end and a handicapped-accessible ramp on the other end.

Work on the home side is progressing, but contractors still have to install railings around the bleachers and some fencing under the stadium.

Director of Schools Chad Moorehead said the stadium is expected to be ready for Moore County High School’s first home football game in late August.
