Photo Report: Bryant-Denny Stadium

Alabama Director of Athletics Mal Moore led members of the Alabama Sports Writer's Association of athletics' facilities earlier this week, giving us a peek of the expansion to Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Fans attending games will notice the changes right away with the construction zone around the north end zone. But much like the work with Coleman Coliseum, that was tidied up for every event there, the construction area will be made passable for home games.

Moore said that about 2,000 seats will be lost for the 2005 season during the construction. After the addition, however, Moore said that Bryant-Denny will seat approximately 92,000 with an upperdeck, skyboxes and club seating.

The field at Bryant-Denny Stadium will remain viewable from the cement circular ramps at each corner.

Staging for the materials being used on the site is just feet away from two fraternity houses.

Rain is usually not welcomed at the site. Tuscaloosa has had its share in the past few weeks, but the work persists.

Slowly but surely, the foundation is beginning to take shape.
