Despite the cold temperatures, work is moving along on the construction of the new stadium suites and seating areas at the north end of Milan Puskar Stadium at Mountaineer Field.
When complete, the suites will sit along ground level at approximately the height of the entry gates under the old scoreboard. Terrace seats will be constructed below the suites, and below that another section which will be reserved for the band.
The old scoreboard has been dismantled and shipped away for reconditioning. Upon completion of the new seating areas, the scoreboard will be moved closer to the field. Supports and foundations for the new seating areas are well underway.
The scoreboard has been removed, a retaining wall built and the ground leveled in preparation for construction of the new stadium suites
