Greenwich High School Fields Remediation Project UPDATE


Removal of soil and excavation work is complete for Phase II of the Greenwich High School Fields Remediation Project and we are moving into the next phase which is to rebuild Field 4. With school starting soon we ask the public to respect the work area near Field 5. The contractor will be looking out for everyone’s safety, so please stay away from the construction zone and be vigilant of any signs, fences, or cones in the area. The Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works and Greenwich Public Schools are working in collaboration to address the environmental concerns pertaining to the fields at Greenwich High School.  To learn about this project and for progress updates, click HERE.

Although Pemberwick Road will be open to the public, there will be periodic times where daytime road closures will occur in order to completely finish the project. The road reopening and project completion is dependent on weather and any unforeseen complications. For more information about this project, click HERE.
