GALESVILLE, Wis. (WKBT) - The construction of a new athletics facility in Galesville is well underway despite delays due to weather.

The four- million dollar facelift for the Galesville-Ettrick-Trempealeau athletics facility will move the football field into the track to make room for bleachers, lights and a concessions area.

While the project has been delayed, school officials are confident the field will be open in time for the first or second home football game.

"The folks that have been working on it have been putting in the extra time and effort necessary to keep us moving forward. We're fortunate in that it doesn't affect our day-to-day operations for school. It's primarily extra-curricular opportunities,” said Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau School District Superintendent Aaron Engel.

The GET school board approved the building project last December. The project did not have to go to referendum as a referendum passed in 2010 gave the school district the right to increase the levy.

Although the school board did not need an okay from the public they did still ask for public input late last year as well.
