Demolition was set to begin at the stadium Monday.
The stadium and area surrounding it is now closed to the public.
The Trussville City Board of Education in December 2014 approved TriStar of America, based out of Norcross, Ga., as the low bidder for the demolition project at Jack Wood Stadium. The bid was $374,000.
The demolition project consists of Jack Wood Stadium; as well as a major portion of the existing New Deal-era school building; interior tear-out of interior finishes, ceiling, lighting, plumbing fixture and associated piping; removal and safe disposal of hazard waste in the form of asbestos and lead paint; track field house; and sidewalks of the existing school.
