Bleacher Reconstruction Update - January 7

It's become a popular thing to do -- take pictures of the bleacher project, especially on a gorgeous, sunny, 42-degree afternoon such as today was.

I saw at least half a dozen other people walking around with cameras. None of them walked right up to the barricades like I did, though.

The angle of the sun, at noon when I took these pictures, was directly at me, which is why there's some glare on some of these photos.

Row 1: view from across the street; closeup view of what will be the entrance; view of the back benches in LF with the walkway clearly below the top level of seats; closer view of the back of LF (worker visible)

Row 2: looking east down Waveland; closeup view of the structural work underneath LF; walkway being completed toward left-center; view toward right-center with structure going up behind existing concrete

Row 3: looking south down Sheffield; view underneath unfinished walkway behind right-center; closeup shot of scene in previous photo (you can see the steel piled up; this will become the walkway); this will be your view through the "knothole", if it indeed goes up as scheduled

Bottom: view of the entire sweep of the new structure in right field from the east side of Sheffield
