The Parents' Coalition received the following comment on the Towson University replacement project:
The original field still had a full 3 years left on it's warranty and it was installed with the same material in and around the same time that Montgomery County installed its (overpriced) fields.Would anyone from Towson University like to weigh in on why the field was replaced so soon, and how much this replacement cost the University?
I wonder how much this public institution paid for this “upgrade”??
MCPS says that their artificial turf fields will last 10 years.
MCPS artificial turf fields are from the same product line that was installed at Towson University's stadium.
Towson University's artificial turf stadium field that only lasted 4.5 years was FieldTurf Duraspine. We can confirm that Duraspine is the same FieldTurf product that was installed at Richard Montgomery and Walter Johnson High School stadiums.
