(Kenosha)–The City of Kenosha and Contractor Rasch Construction have reportedly agreed in principle to remove and replace 15 of the cracked concrete panels that have caused the Washington Park Velodrome to remain shuttered all summer long. In his regular Wednesday interview, 17th district Kenosha Alderman David Bogdala said that while a few details need to be worked out-like whether or not the repairs can still be completed this year-the agreement should allow the bicycle racing track to reopen in 2017. Bogdala says that the majority of the cost for repair will come from the contractor with a small amount to be covered by the city. The Velodrome opened in 1927 and is the oldest of its kind in the country. You can hear the full interview with Alderman Bogdala by listening to the podcast below.
