Wrigley Field Construction Update: November 19

New, 25 comments

The construction phase of the project is beginning.

With cranes now appearing behind the bleacher wall, the construction of the new bleachers and the supports for the video boards should begin soon. Just in time for that, the weather's supposed to start getting a bit milder after one more really cold day Thursday.

BCB's David Sameshima filed this report from his Wednesday trek to Wrigley:

They are continuing to do utility work at Addison and Sheffield, which is backing up traffic. They weren't doing much work along the right-field side during my visit. They were doing some work in back of center field using a lift. They appeared to be assembling equipment along Waveland Avenue.

David also mentioned to me that during his visits, he's spoken to some area residents, including those along Seminary Avenue who were watching the groundskeeper's house move, and that many of those residents are new BCB readers. So, welcome to them!

We should have more photos here Friday.
