Future hockey stars building their skills at UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park will soon have a new sheet of “ice” to play on.
A contract with T&C Sports Inc. for resurfacing the rink was approved at the June 1 Board of Supervisors meeting.
The 10-year-old deck has reached the end of its usable life, and the wear, tear, and weathering of the surface has become more prevalent. Repairs have become challenging as the individual tiles are no longer being produced.
The full replacement of the surface is planned for the Fall.
