Wrigley Field construction update: November 25

The ballpark before the snowstorm.

With a snowstorm predicted for late Sunday and early Monday, I decided to head to Wrigley early on Sunday morning to avoid tromping around in the snow trying to take photos. Very early — these photos were taken at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.

You might think there wouldn’t be much work going on at that time of day on a holiday weekend, but you’d be wrong. There was plenty of activity on all areas of the project, with lots of workers visible.

Some of the shrouds had been peeled back at the southeast corner, so I was able to take a few photos from across the street of the work going on inside (photos 10, 11, 14 and 15). There’s quite a bit of noise happening with all this, though not quite as loud as on previous visits to the area.

And, the construction on Waveland continues, with the extension of the outer bleacher wall getting bigger (photo 8).

Up to now, there haven’t been any delays in the project due to weather. I suspect the storm that blew through Sunday night might slow things down a bit Monday, though.

We hope to have more photos here later in the week. The home opener, the Cubs facing the Pirates on April 8, 2019, is 19 weeks from today.
