Alerus Center turf replacement underway

The four million dollar turf at the Alerus Center is being replaced after just seven months. The turf was used for just six games.

The four million dollar turf at the Alerus Center is being replaced after just seven months. The turf was used for just six games. Officials say there's a problem with the conversion process, not the turf itself.

The turf was installed last summer by Astro Turf, a Georgia-based company. It is being replaced for free. Employees tell us there's nothing wrong with the playability, safety and performance of the turf but they want to ensure the set up and take down machinery is up to their standards. Alerus Center officials and the UND Football staff say they are pleased with how the company is handling the repairs. The turf is expected to be fixed by June.
