Holland Youth Sports Retaining Wall Failure at May's Field Facility 172 | Updated: 8:00 AM, November 2, 2016 | Posted: 4:00 PM, April 11, 2016 Engineers
completed a replacement design for the retaining wall in September.
The new design will terrace the hillside to better utilize the space
and provide additional opportunities for use of the area. Materials
were ordered in late September and began shipping November 1. Work on
site started November 1 with the first deliveries and will take several
weeks to complete. Once finished, the sidewalk connecting Field 7 to
the Quad Concession Stand will need to be reconstructed and the
disturbed areas landscaped. We are targeting to complete work before
the start of the spring ball season. This page will be updated as work
determined that repair of the wall is not feasible and thus a full
replacement will be required. Crews have conducted a utility locate and
created a topographic survey of the area to be used by engineers to
design the wall replacement. We are now working to purchase materials
and obtain the final engineering with a goal of replacing the wall this
The retaining wall
between Field 3 and Field 7 (also known as May's Field) at Holland
Youth Sports has partially failed. Crews have fenced off the hazard
area while engineers assess the situation. With additional portions of
the wall showing signs of stress, it is expected that complete
replacement will be required. As such, repairs are expected to take
several months to complete. This page will be updated as additional
information becomes available.
