New LED lights are being installed at the Castle football field, according to Department of Education spokesperson Lindsay Chambers.
The work is planned to begin in October and that’s why the Knights’ schedule was changed to all road games for its Oahu Interscholastic Association season.
In addition, some problems have been found with the light fixtures.
“Preliminary inspections found rusted safety brackets on 13 existing light fixtures and they were removed as a safety precaution,” Chambers wrote in an email to Hawaii Prep World. “Please note that these are 13 individual lights fixtures mounted at the tops of the seven stadium light poles, not the poles or mounts themselves. As the football schedule was already modified in preparation for the LED lighting replacement project, Castle High, all schools and teams are aware and prepared.”
