The MHA was given an update today from the General Services Division (GSD) of the City of Detroit.
Work is scheduled to begin today for renovations of the two south courts. Resurfacing: This will include grinding down and crack-filling the existing surface. Then a non-skid epoxy coating with gray colorant is applied. After that, 1-1/2" red service and out lines will be painted.
Installation of back and side fencing will also begin. This will be black vinyl-clad steel cyclone, 1-3/4" mesh. The 10' high backstop fencing will run the 70' span. Side fencing to create a U shape will be 8' high.
Weather-permitting, this work should take two weeks. The two north courts will remain available for play during that time.
The GSD was renamed from the more familiar Parks & Recreation Department of years past. The GSD manages construction and maintenance which includes the city's parks.
