Merrill Green Stadium Track Remains Closed For Public WalkingFeatured Stories, News Wednesday, November 14th, 2012
Last summer, the track at Merrill Green Stadium in Bryan was closed to the public.
At the time, it was to replace the natural grass field to synthetic turf.
Earlier this month, the Bryan school board decided to continue public access to tracks at Rayburn, Long, and Stephen F. Austin schools.
Superintendent Tommy Wallis noted vandalism problems since the new surfaces at the football stadium and a practice field at Rudder High.
