The actual red Sprinturf product is scheduled to be shipped and will arrive in Cheney, Wash., as early as Aug. 2 as the prep work for Eastern Washington University's Red Turf Project is nearing completion.

The project is two weeks ahead of schedule, with actual installation of turf beginning as soon as possible once the product arrives. The projected completion date is still listed as Sept. 3, with the inaugural game on the red turf taking place Sept. 18 versus Montana, scheduled to start at 4:05 p.m. Pacific time.

"The project has benefited from great weather and a strong effort from Pauletto Trucking and Excavation to be ahead of schedule," said Michael Westfall, executive director of the EWU Foundation and project lead. "With a tight timeframe, we remain hopeful to complete the project early to allow as much additional practice time on the field as possible for what promises to be a great season."
