Abstract/Artist Statement

The historic Grape Bowl Stadium in Lodi, California was built under the Works Progress Administration of the Great Depression and was completed in 1940. The project provided a great boost for the local economy during the depression era and has served as the focal point of city events for 70 years, but it does not meet accessibility requirements set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.The improvements planned for the Grape Bowl Stadium project include those required to achieve compliance with California accessibility standards and those necessary to increase the usability and accessibility of the stadium. The proposed improvements for the stadium have been split into two phases. Phase One renovations will achieve compliance with California accessibility standards which will utilize the money that the City of Lodi currently has available for the project.The renovations for Phase One, which are being designed by Calimont, include: removal of a section of the earthen berm on the west end for the paving of an open plaza; installation of wheelchair accessible ramps; installation of wheelchair accessible seating; design of maintenance access roads; installation of a new scoreboard; foundations for new prefabricated buildings for ticket booths, concessions, and restrooms; and construction details and specifications. Project construction began in April 2011.
