(WBIR- Knoxville) After months of delays, the University of Tennessee says new intramural fields in West Knoxville are almost finished.
It's been almost two years since workers began demolishing two apartment complexes along Sutherland Avenue that had fallen into disrepair. By early last year, work on the new fields was making progress, and the university expected them to open by last fall.
Now after some delays, the university says the fields are nearly ready. It expects to complete the finishing touches next month and open the fields for students to use by this fall.
