Historic Hayward Field teardown begins by ripping apart roof timbers, as Klinger explains “salvage” plans

Update: From the RG, here:

UO spokesman Tobin Klinger described the work being done Friday as the “pre-construction process,” part of preparing the site for a new stadium.

“There are a couple of earth-movers that are doing the removal in a way that is intended to allow us to continue to salvage materials as we go through this process, for future use,” Klinger said.

It’s not cheap to find a man willing to say things like this – though I’m not sure why UO is paying Mr. Klinger to carry water for Paul Weinhold’s UO Foundation:

    Indeed we can build to an excellent faculty by salvaging all the deadwood around here – I am sure this is phase 2 of the overall salvage plan – I will be looking for the earthmovers to show up
    in my lab, any day now

    Trash it quick before anyone can come up with the money to move/save it. That happens so often in this town. Damn us for short-sighted idiots — furture generations certainly will.

    I believe they did salvage the seats. But today they are just bulldozing up the ruined exterior timbers. Definitely no salvage happening, it’s a jumbled mess. Maybe it will get ground up into mulch somewhere or re purposed as bio fuel instead of landfill we can hope.

      From the gym this morning I could see (or I thought I saw) where they were pulling out the larger pieces of lumber and putting them into a pile at the south end of Hayward. Whether or not that observation qualifies as “salvage” depends upon what happens to those larger pieces…

        Rumor down at the faculty club pool party is that we can help ourselves to any lengths of clear doug fir 12×12’s that survived, to shore up PLC offices for the big one. Andre LeDuc’s Risk Management has a loaner chainsaw, bring your own gloves and rigging.

          great,
          can use that to build to Department of Dead Wood,
          each member gets their own salvaged plank for
          their desk

          waiting for the big one …

            I suspect that the destruction of Onyx Bridge would be uniquely devoid of protesters …

      I love the smell of lead-based biofuel. I wonder what a cord of Historic Hayward Fuel runs – split and stacked.
