Will work stop once the season starts, or will they continue to work?

It's just a guess but it wouldn't surprise me if the structure is done before the season and they work on the interior during the season.

Amazing! I didn't think they would finish it in time for the first game but at the pace they're going they could be finish sooner.

The most important renovation/expansion/construction that needs to be completed is Stadium Drive.

They've had the section of what used to be S Virginia Ave. closed for a while now.  They are putting in another round-a-bout and are building new student living in that area as well.



It will be interesting to see if they have the road open by season.

If the game day locker room is not finished, only 35,000 fans will be allowed for the TCU game

too much risk

You can actually see a significant amount of change from the outside now. It also gives a better idea of how it will look when complete

I can't wait to be in the stadium on game day with it all finished. Anyone know how they will run the two video boards? I'm guessing they will be synced so we can get the full Petit Jean Meats experience

Hopefully they will do separate commercials on each board, get them over quicker.

It's been way too long since I've made it up for a game; are they still running commercials during short breaks in the action? Used to drive me nuts, 3rd n 6 on the 18, timeout, PETIT JEAN MEEEAAATTTSSSSS

Bielema said this morning at a golf outing in Ft. Smith that we will not be using the NEZ this season. They haven't even finalized the design for the locker room, they plan to visit some this fall to decide what they want.

Very early talk was lower level shelled in for gameday locker room in 2917.  Not going to happen after all.  Will be interesting to see how pregame changes will go regarding moving or deleting the Hog Walk and entering through the "A" from the south end.

Arkansas game days are going to be different in 2017 given the construction on-going in the north end zone at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The home team will not be able to use its locker room during this upcoming season.
Quote
ďI have not heard anyone say that it will be any way usable. There have never been any plans to use it this season. It just canít be ready. We havenít even finalized plans for it. That will be done later. Some things are still being talked about. So we are still working out what amenities we want.Ē

Bielema was joined by Scott Varady, executive director of the Razorback Foundation, in speaking with the media on Monday. Varady says that Arkansas will be using the visitorís locker room, while away teams will dress in an area that has been used by the cheerleaders.

Varady also says that recent rain in the Fayetteville area has slowed down construction on the new north end zone area.

That's disappointing.  Already giving up two quarters each game.  Hope we're on fire the other two..

If we have to hold off on some traditions for a year, it's no big deal. The end result will be well worth it. Our stadium will be top notch.

They should just make the game day locker room a carbon copy of the one in the football center and be done with it.

Maybe because the players really like the one in the new football center. What's wrong with uniformity??

Different uses and needs, they'll wire the game day locker room for when they'll be able to use videos at halftime, they use meeting rooms in the football center. Obviously the coaching staff thinks they need to make it different than the Smith Center locker room, but I'm sure as usual, you know better.

Agreed, they'll definitely need areas for viewing videos but I wasn't counting that as part of the locker room. Your point is well made though.
