(WTNH)–Despite concerns from the Hartford Stadium Authority, the agency overseeing the Yard Goats’ new $56 million ballpark, developers say the project will be finished on time.
The Hartford Stadium Authority issued a statement earlier in the week, saying that the park may not be ready until late spring, and reporting a $10 million shortfall. It also asked the developer to provide written assurance that the project will be completed on time, with a “detailed financial plan to show the funds available to meet that date.”
Developers said on Monday that information about the shortfall was wrong, and that the stadium will be ready by April.
Even if it is, it may not have all of the amenities originally intended. The Hartford Courant reported in October that plans for a grandstand roof had been nixed because of cost overruns during construction.
The Yard Goats are scheduled to play their first home game on April 7.
