EUGENE, Ore. – Two weeks after the city of Eugene approved late-night construction hours at Hayward Field, residents say the noise has not been an issue.

RELATED: Hayward field construction work extends to midnight 

Hoffman Construction, the contractor in charge of the project, applied for later hours to finish the stadium faster. The city granted the request with some limitations.

There are a few limits on noise until 9 p.m., but after that time, decibel readings at nearby homes cannot go above 60 decibels. Construction must completely stop by midnight.

Gabe Scannell, who lives nearby, says the workers have been respectful of the city guidelines.

“I find the construction isn't that big of a deal. Eugene has so much construction going on that I'm used to it at this point,” Scannell said.

Hayward Field is expected to be completed by May 2020. In the meantime, Scannell said he’s more worried about the noise from cars on the road.

“It's mostly been road noise; this is a really busy street so it doesn't affect the people I talk to at least," Scannell said.
