NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - Niagara Falls is investing heavily to bring its high school sports to a new playing field.
On Tuesday, Phase I got underway for the installation of nine synthetic turf fields. Three will be installed this fall, and the remaining six will be finished in the spring.
A-Turf President Jim Dobmeier said, "In the world of synthetics at the high school level, one or two fields is typically a luxury, nine is unheard of."
The new fields are part of a $67 million investment, which also includes new science, technology, engineering and math classrooms in each of the district's 11 schools.
