The purpose of this project was the first step toward implementing the Tonsler Park Master Plan which included the renovation of the Park’s Basketball courts. The existing courts had reached a point of degradation insufficient for athletic use. Line and Grade recommended the existing pavement section be explored to reveal the cause of the extensive cracking of the pavement section. It was determined that the existing base course was insufficient; thus Line and Grade devised a unique approach to minimizing the needed fill to appropriately develop the pavement section while designing new basketball courts in accordance with the NCAA regulations. The project also included an on-demand lighting system with Musco Lights.
