Earlier this month, I & Y Construction completed our part of the baseball field lighting project for the Penns Valley Little League in Centre Hall, PA . I & Y Construction put the “poles in the air” and installed all the underground conduit working as a subcontractor for Musco Lighting, the manufacturer of the LED sports lighting system.
Our “pole in the air” scope of work included drilling four 30” diameter holes 12-14’ deep and setting four precast concrete bases in those holes. We assembled the steel pole sections and attached the Musco LED Lighting fixtures on the crossarms. We then set the four steel poles with a crane and aligned the lights. There were two 60’ poles and two 70’ poles installed to light the field.
The conduit installation included trenching, installing conduit, and backfilling the trenches. Over 1000’ of trenching and conduit was required.
The sports lighting project was funded through a $150,000 recreation grant the Penns Valley Little League received through the state of Pennsylvania. The new lights will facilitate evening games and extend the fall season when the days get shorter.
