As the Cantiague Park Ice Rink project nears a month since its start, the rink boards and dasher boards are 80 percent constructed, the glass around the boards, both the seamless panes on the spectator's side and the panes held in by aluminum brackets are up, as the only major portion of the project that remains is the construction of the drainage systems. The crew has already dug out a two-foot deep trench that will house drainage pipes, electrical wires to operate the new scoreboard, in addition to accommodating the pipes that will run fresh water to the home and away benches. 

As the crew worked on leveling the area near the zamboni door, the main drain near the zamboni entrance was installed. On Wednesday, all of the pipes were set in the ground as the concrete was poured and leveled. Once the concrete is given a few days to settle and dry, the remainder of the boards will be installed and permanently drilled into the new concrete and the glass will be installed.

And now, its just a waiting game as the concrete must settle and solidify before the crew can anchor the last section of boards into the Cantiague Park Ice Rink
