With the ADA i would have to think it will better than Legion field which was an add on. This will be built with ADA in mind

I hope and pray that your optimism is warranted

No need to pray. It is required by federal law that new construction include accommodations for the handicapped. I just hope that they don't stick the wheelchair sections in the gawdawful places that Lesion Field has them.

There is handicapped seating in sections 101,102,103,104,105,106,107,108,110,112,113,114,115,116,
117,118,119,120,121,122,123,124,125,126,127,128,129,130,
131,132,133,134,135,140,142,144,145,146,147 & 148 which is practically completely around the field

Cool beans, thanks. I hadn't looked at a seating chart to see the details. At Lesion Field it was either fry overlooking the south goal line or sit on the very north or south end at the very top. Neither was very good.

The old bowl type south end zone with Gate #7 and the stadium ticket sales offices was the only open gate for high school games and may have contributed to the now decried "Home side" and "Visitor side" designation arrangement. When one entered Gate #7 one was directed by arrow signs to the side for each school. The "Home" team was on the press box - west - side and the east was the "Visitor" side.

Is it a live video feed for you? For me, it's just a still shot.

It's never been a live video feed. The still updates every 5 minutes (I think)

Gotcha. The photo is ever-so-slightly different than when I posted that ten minutes ago (a car is in a different spot), so I see that it updated. Thanks.

They just finished spreading another big pour on the south end of the stadium this morning. The concrete started flowing around 1 or 2AM this morning.

Click for the current time-lapse video of the construction. Once the page appears, you have to click the screen to make the video start to play.

Very cool, and exciting. Watching that is also a reminder of the ridiculous amounts of rain that we have had since they started, and add to that a pandemic/quarantine, and it's all the more exciting the progress they have made.

I think weather is factored in to construction estimates. The pandemic has had much less impact than I expected because they never stopped construction. I had expected at least a month of work stoppage. Apparently stadiums are more essential than public roads
