The demolition of Dodge Field began this morning . This is the first step in the construction of a $65 million addition to East Leyden. This construction includes a new expansive pool, a new state of the art cafeteria, new labs, new girls locker room, and a new wrestling room. The music department is getting new practice facilities. Also there will be an employee daycare facility and a Districtwide preK program facility constructed. For the next two years traffic patterns will have detours around East Leyden. The construction should be completed by the Fall of 2019. For many it is the passing of some great memories at Dodge Field.
