Construction underway at Poage Park

Posted: Updated:

Construction at La Crosse's Poage Park is well underway.

It's one of many neighborhood revitalization projects taking place in the city.

Right now crews are in the process of taking the park building down.

Once the the pavement is cleaned up the building process can begin.

The entire park is expected to be complete by spring of next year, just in time for the summer Olympics.

George Poage, who the park is named after, was the first African American to win an Olympic medal.
