Artificial turf under construction at D'Iberville, Harrison Central high schools

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Things are looking up at D'Iberville and Harrison Central. Both high schools are getting a brand new artificial football turf.

According to Harrison Central School District Athletic Director Mike Gavin, the total cost for the new turf and other overall improvements at both football complexes will run $1.2 million.

Gavin expects the total renovations to be completed by mid-August, just in time for the kickoff of the 2013 high school football season.

At Warrior Stadium, Anthony Norton, a supervisor with Dan Hensarling Incorporated, had his crew working laying down cement. He said his company wasn't involved in the construction of the turf, but would be renovating the entire Warrior Stadium, including the track.

"We're going to renovate the bleachers, put in new rails, putting in the new track around the field and renovating the old bleachers," Norton said.

Another company is doing the renovations at Harrison Central.

At Warrior Stadium, a company was cutting the grass with a special machine and a worker was placing sod neatly on a pallet, nothing is going to waste.

The old football grass at Harrison Central and D'Iberville High School will be planted at the new Three Rivers Elementary School.

Harrison Central and D'Iberville will join Biloxi, Ocean Springs and West Harrison with artificial football turf. Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College also has artificial turf.
