Wrigley Field Construction Update: November 30

New, 7 comments

Once again, there was no work going on at the ballpark Sunday. That didn't stop me from finding out a lot about construction.

One would hope that the Wrigley Field construction project will resume in full swing Monday, after the holiday weekend. It's supposed to be very cold Monday, but without high winds and no precipitation and in fact, the entire week is supposed to be with near-normal temperatures and no rain or snow.

So I hope our next set of photos after this one will show some actual work being done. There wasn't any going on Sunday afternoon, though I did see quite a number of Cubs security employees on the street, rushing to a meeting of some kind that was going on inside the ballpark, as they were all wearing hard hats.

I also met up with BCBer Wait till Next Century, also known as "Timmy -- BCB Consulting Engineer for the 1060 Project." He walked all around the ballpark with me, explaining various parts of the project and the equipment being used, while taking photos of his own. Some of the photos in this post were taken as he was describing things to me, so I hope he'll chime in, in the comments.

He promised me he'd write up his thoughts on what he saw, along with annotations of the photos he took. I'll have that here in the next few days.

In the meantime, here are my photos from a foggy, gloomy Sunday at Clark & Addison.
