Construction up and running on athletic track near new Yankee Stadium

Construction crews broke ground Thursday on an interim track to serve runners near the new Yankee Stadium site.

Many in the community say the track comes a little too late, considering they were promised a replacement track in August. The old track was torn up when work started at the stadium site. Officials say the delay was due to a change to accommodate the Little League season. Runners are currently using the sidewalk.

The temporary 350-yard rubber track will be completed in spring 2007. A permanent 400-yard track is expected to open in 2010.
