Wrigley Field Construction Update: October 29

New, 29 comments

A chilly, cool afternoon at Wrigley brought mostly more debris removal.

BCB's David Sameshima couldn't make it over to Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon, so I decided to head over toward the ballyard myself to check out what was going on construction-wise.

It was cloudy and chilly with temperatures around 50 degrees. You know, Opening Day weather. There were quite a number of trucks lined up on both Waveland and Sheffield while I was there, and the heavy equipment was doing more debris removal. There wasn't any further demolition going on while I was there -- of course, that could have been because I was there between noon and 1 p.m. and I did see some of the workers heading back to the site. Some of them had probably been on their lunch hour.

One thing you can see is the large steel beams that David mentioned yesterday. These photos don't really give you an idea of just how huge those beams are -- I'd guess they could be more than 100 feet long.

I did get one photo from David late in the day, of more of the steel beams on a truck heading toward Wrigley, parked in the median of Western Avenue near Addison (photo 29).

I also wanted to share with you a couple of music videos BCB's Danny Rockett made with video he shot over the last few days at Wrigley. Fun stuff:
