Site preparation is fairly routine at Lambeth Field. It is already...


a fairly level surface. Next to Turf Field there's dirt to move to get to grade level. That bumps up the cost out of the gate. Neither do we know what things are underground along the Emmitt Street line that may eventually require access for repair or maintenance. Also, there are always planning/zoning issues placing sports venues next to high occupancy transportation arteries post-9/11. I've not checked UVA's requirements, but can almost guarantee you there are set-back requirements that must be adhered to based upon public safety. None of those issues exist at Lambeth Field.

Honestly, I can't think of a more iconic, high profile location for a UVA sport to reside than Lambeth Field, especially if the colonnades remain undisturbed. As a majority women's university, I think it sends the right message having softball located there.
