This is the new ribbon scoreboards being put up on the pre-existing North End Zone.


and one minor piece of the renovation, replacing the old ground level walkways with a brick walkway, and lining the field with a wrought iron fence rather than the old chainlink fence.

Glad to see that the chain link is finally coming down! The paved walkway and new fence will have a huge cosmetic impact on the interior of the stadium. Hope the plans include putting the hedge back at the bottom of the stands (or including one as part of the fencing, ala Georgia).

Working on getting tickets to Alabama/Penn State for this September so I can see it in person!

yeah, they're going to put the hedges back at the base of the stands below the front row. It'll be exactly like it used to be, with the exception of the brick walkway vs. the concrete walkway, and the iron fence vs. the chainlink fence.

Was there a walkway before, or was it hedges?
It was a concrete walkway with hedges lining the wall and a chainlink fence separating the field. They are replacing the concrete with brick pavers, and the chainlink with a wrought-iron fence. The hedges will still go back up against the wall.

This older picture shows what it used to be.

They've taken the cranes down. Here's some overhead shots.

Red seat areas are starting to encroach on the bench areas in this stadium.

While not red, most of the bleachers are covered with removable cushioned chairbacks. They are also grey, so it's hard to see them in pictures. And they are removable so they remain in good condition from not sitting out in the elements during the offseason.

I wouldn't look for too many more of those to go in. Those are the club seating areas, or higher donor areas. It'll always be bleachers especially in one of the endzones, which is the student section where people actually usually stand on the bleachers...

Also, this should be finishing up in just a few weeks. The scoreboards are in place, and all of the bleachers throughout the entire stadium have also been replace. New sod has been put in for the field for the next season.
