New bleachers to be open at State High game Friday night

Memorial Field’s new west side bleachers will be open for Friday night’s State College High vs. Central Mountain game.

Centre Region codes officers signed off on the State College Area School District’s temporary occupancy permit, according to a news release from school spokeswoman Julie Miller.

Portions of the project, like the sinkhole excavation and drainage system that caused the issue, and the turf and the temporary bleachers on the east side of the field, have been completed, but the west bleachers and brick walkway on Fraser Street still are in limbo. The total project cost about $3 million.

While Fraser Street remains closed, the school suggested fans park in the Beaver Avenue garage. The entrance is on Beaver Avenue.

Kick off is at 7 p.m.
