THE BIG DIG: CBU is currently working in conjunction with the City of Memphis to develop a water detention facility on Signaigo Soccer Field. When completed, this $1.8M project, underwritten entirely through the City's Storm Water Disposal fees, should help to alleviate flooding throughout the Midtown area, including the area under the Union Avenue overpass and the Capstone parking lots. A smaller version of the finished project can be seen at the 2nd Presbyterian Church Athletic Fields at the corner of Central and Graham. The City is working to have the facility in place in time for this fall's soccer season. Several of the highlights of the project include: a lighted cart path along the north side of the field, a 20' x 30' student gathering spot located on the north retaining wall, and a three-tiered layered grass seating area FOR spectators on the west side of the field. We apologize in advance for any inconveniences that this may cause students and staff over the next several months but the project should have a very positive effect on the back side of the campus when completed.
