Was on Fifth Avenue yesterday and looked over to see the shanty is still up on the east stands.

I'm starting to worry.....

It's going to start in a couple weeks. They've been doing some preliminary work. There will be construction all football season long hence why that side will be closed off from the fans. Should be done August 2019.

Any updates on the construction on the east side? Can't tell much by looking from the west stands other than the notch they cut out a month or so ago.

Lots of foundation work. Won't see much going up until the weather breaks next year.

Just an update:

Contractor has been selected for the building of the new indoor tennis and bowling center. Going to be located on West Scott and Belmont. 6 indoor tennis courts and 6 bowling lanes with bleachers and restrooms.

Once completed in fall 2019, they will take out the outdoor tennis courts by the WATTS and make that all parking and start to build the athletic field where the parking lot is now across the bridge by Cafaro dorms.

This might not have had huge publicity compared to some other projects, but this is a HUGE step forward for the campus.
Thanks for the update Chief!

It is always great for the university to expand between 5th and Belmont (even better with expansion into West of Belmont). That area is really depressing right now (mostly parking lots). I am regularly teaching evening classes past 10 pm. Believe me, Walking to those parking lots at 10:30 pm is not fun.

I am also looking forward to possible expansions into North of Madison Expressway and East of Wick Ave.
