HARTFORD – On Wednesday night, Arch Insurance announced that it has chosen Baltimore-based Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. to finish Dunkin’ Donuts Park. Whiting-Turner has extensive experience in building sports venues.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin made the following statement:

“We’re very pleased that Arch has selected a completion contractor with extensive construction experience, including the construction of sports facilities and stadiums. I appreciate the Arch’s commitment to moving this project forward quickly, and we look forward to working closely with Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., with the Yard Goats, and with the Eastern League in the months ahead.”

Arch Insurance said they expect that Whiting Turner and some subcontractors will be on site next week to begin work on the park.
