Truro 'optimistic' Colchester Legion Stadium will reopen in late-August

Colchester Legion Stadium

The Town of Truro says it's optimistic about reopening Colchester Legion Stadium in late-August, in time for the 2023-24 season.

The facility was closed in September due to major roof and water damage to the interior due to post-tropical storm Fiona.

A release today says the project scope has been established and the town is working with contractors to obtain quotes on the cost of repairs.

The quotes will need to be approved by the town's insurance provider.

At this month's council meeting, CAO Mike Dolter had said the town was waiting on insurance and their directives on how to move forward.

He also said a lack of contractors was hampering efforts.

The town's release today referenced that point, stating the delays are magnified by a shortage of contractors available to complete a project of this size.
