Take a drive down Cleveland Road (U.S. 6) between Sandusky and Huron to see a completely changed corridor.

Once-barren land now features structures, light poles, outfield fencing and, in some spots, green turf covering playing surfaces.

“We’ve been doing a lot of work, but people now have a visual to show how we’re moving forward,” said Brian Storm, president and CEO of The Sports Force.

The Georgia-based management company is investing, supervising and managing this $23.5 million multi-stadium complex, known as Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center.

After breaking ground in April, several rainy days greeted about 100 construction workers at the 57-acre site.

“We have great employees in our company and great people on this job,” said Storm, who supervises the workers. “We’ve been very fortunate with all the local people working with us on this job.
