Bertram Field work to start next month


The contractor has agreed to have the city hold his $192,500 bid for 60 days, Duncan said.

“We’re waiting to see where we are (after 60 days),” Duncan said.

David White and Son, a Bow, N.H.-based company, specializes in construction of outdoor athletic facilities. They’ve done projects at numerous schools and universities throughout New England, including an artificial turf field and track complex at Gordon College in Wenham.

According to Mayor Kim Driscoll’s office, the process to install an artificial turf field involves excavating the soil beneath the old field, so this would have been done at Bertram Field regardless of whether arsenic had been found.

Bertram Field, behind Collins Middle School, is used by Salem High athletics, as well as youth sports programs.
