Track names contractors to replace grandstands

    WATKINS GLEN—Watkins Glen International has confirmed three locally-based contractors to aid the legendary road course in its most recent installment of capital improvements. It is a part of the $1.5 million plan to replace the Ninety, McDonald’s Family and Red, White, and Blue Grandstands in advance of the 2012 season.
    The project is in its early stages and, once completed, it will add approximately 2,000 seats and provide fans with new perspectives of The Glen. A trio of local companies has been selected to aid in the demolition and construction of each grandstand.
    E&D Specialty Stands, Inc. returns to Watkins Glen International for the second consecutive season to install bleachers once again. Based in North Collins, NY, E&D will excavate and install all of the foundations.
    The Ninety and McDonald’s Family Grandstands will be removed by Swarthout Recycling. Swarthout, out of Beaver Dams, is responsible for complete removal of all wooden planks, steel and foundations from the existing bleachers.  The wooden planks and steel will both be recycled and reused in other projects handled by Swarthout.
    Nearby Hunt Engineers will aid Watkins Glen International in grading and developing a Storm Water Pollution Plan that meets the DEC requirements throughout the entire project.
    Both the McDonald’s Family and Ninety Grandstands have already been demolished and the contract for the Red, White, and Blue is expected to be awarded shortly. The foundation for the McDonald’s Family Grandstand has been poured with construction of the frame expected to start in the coming weeks.
