It was snowy and cold Sunday in Chicago, but BCB’s David Sameshima headed to Wrigley Field to check out the status of the 1060 Project. Here’s his report.
I arrived around 3:30 p.m. There were workers still working, but a group was leaving after 4:00 p.m. Two workers appeared to be pulling cable/wiring in the left field bleachers. I photographed the walkway in the upper deck patio above the marquee. It appears very narrow so maybe this is a maintenance catwalk, and not for public use. Maybe there’s another public walkway up there, behind the club area.
They are also starting to rebuild the dormers (the arched walkways) in the upper deck, as you can see in photos 33, 35 and 37.
Lastly, there now appears to be a small canopy around the Wintrust Gate/Gate D area. It is not large enough, though, to cover the entire gate area.
It might not feel like it right now, with snow on the ground and nasty weather approaching Chicago Monday, but baseball will be played at Wrigley Field eight weeks from today, Monday, April 8, when the Cubs host the Pirates, and the Cubs will take on the Brewers at Sloan Park in Mesa a week from Saturday to begin the 2019 Cactus League season.
