Cam­den Yards slated for im­prove­ment projects

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - — Jeff Barker

As Ori­ole Park at Cam­den Yards turns 25 next year, a few im­prove­ments are in the works. The Mary­land Sta­dium Au­thor­ity has signed con­tracts to up­grade light­ing and heat­ing in the ball­park. The au­thor­ity also ap­proved re­plac­ing car­pet­ing on the club level but had not ex­e­cuted that con­tract as of last week. Musco Sports Light­ing, an Iowa com­pany, signed a con­tract worth up to $1.67 mil­lion with the au­thor­ity on Oct. 3 to de­mol­ish ex­ist­ing light­ing and in­stall new LED sports light­ing. It signed a $469,500 con­tract with Ariosa and Co., a Mary­land com­pany, to re­place the ball­park’s “heat trace” sys­tem. The play­ing sur­face at Cam­den Yards is also be­ing re­placed — the first time since 2008 that the grass is be­ing swapped out. The con­tracts were ob­tained un­der a Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Act re­quest filed with the au­thor­ity, which is the team’s land­lord on be­half of the state.
