Dates for Cubs Ballpark Project Announced

March 8, 2012

It took a random trip past the future site of the Chicago Cubs new ballpark site today to find out when the project approved almost two years ago by Mesa voters will get started at the Riverview Golf Course.

From the schedule posted on a huge project sign at the entrance to the park, it looks like the city-owned golf course will close on March 18 with a tree salvage operation beginning the next day.

The park then will close on April 2 followed by the closure of the softball fields on June 27. Construction begins in July and will be completed in December 2013!
