Tommy Oliver Stadium Nearing Completion

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - After more than a year of construction, the highly anticipated Tommy Oliver Stadium is in the finishing stages of completion.

The field turf, bleachers, score board and LED lights are all complete.

On Tuesday crews laid down the new running track surface. Still ahead is adding an elevator to the new press box, adding fences, and working on facilities like locker rooms and concession stands. 

The 12 million dollar project is funded by the half cent sales tax and from private donations. 

Bay District's Director of Facilities, Lee Walters, said they are on track to have the stadium complete in time for high school graduations.

"The contractor is on board, he is making great progress. We are in the finishing stages and when this project is done, it will be a project that all of Bay County will be proud of for many years to come," said Lee Walters. 

The new stadium will be home for athletics at Bay, Rutherford, Mosley and North Bay Haven high schools. 

Bozeman and Arnold will continue to use their own facilities.
