Arm & Hammer Park Lighting
Monday, March 09, 2015

Trenton's Arm & Hammer Park is undergoing $584,000 in stadium lighting upgrades to meet Major League Baseball standards, county officials said.

The majority of the cost is to replace the lights that tower over the stadium with more modern, energy efficient lighting, said Kevin Bannon, director of the Mercer County Park Commission. The original lightning system is more than 20 years old and has been graded deficient in Major League Baseball audits for at least eight years, Bannon said.

"We're excited about the project," Bannon said. "Even with lousy weather we're still on schedule and should be ready for opening day."

The Trenton Thunder host the Portland Seadogs in the April 9 home opener. Bannon noted only the lights are being replaced, and not the poles.

The county award a $584,000 in the fall to Carr Duff Inc. with funds coming from the park commission's 2014 capital budget program. The project includes $92,000 in lighting upgrades along ballpark walkways.

Bannon said the additions will address safety and security concerns, particularly when the main lights are turned off for fireworks.
