I know it is only a temporary view, but it strikes me as odd seeing the south closed in with the north open.......after the exact opposite for all those years.

The new scoreboard looks absolutely gigantic to the naked eye, I can tell you that.

Well, it's not really new (other than it's location in the stadium)... Its the exact scoreboard that was in the NEZ in previous seasons. Maybe it just seems bigger because its higher up and we've never seen anything in that space before.

You reckon when they finish the DWRRS job, we can get that crew on I-40 between Memphis and Little Rock?

Wow, I never would've guessed that. Maybe it's just the positioning there on the south end but I thought it looked 2 or 3 times as big.

Wow, really coming along.  I'm not a Civil Engineer, but how will all of this rain affect the building/longevity of this project.  I just don't want them to get it built, and then we have a settling problem.  I'm sure with the amount of money they are making on this project, that the construction team will ensure the highest quality of work.  But, being around a lot of government contracting and seeing the cheapest bidder more often than not do the crappiest job, I was just curious.

This is a cost+ job, they aren't skimping on the details. Outside of last weekend, there hasn't been an inordinate amount of rain in Fayetteville this winter, probably below average.

The soil/foundation was prepped before construction began (sand). And they won't work on much unless its dry enough.

I wonder if it was a contract similar to the Broadway Bridge in that if they get it completed by a certain date, they receive more compensation.

Plans have changed, suites will not be added to the NEZ. Instead, boosters have decided to take the "game day experience" to the next level by building a small theme park. The 1st addition will be a large yellow roller coaster that can be taken from the west side of the stadium to the east side. *satire*  :D

Between construction and truckers driving 50 mph side-by-side for 20 mile stretches at a time (I swear they do that on purpose), I now take 64 from Marion to Conway without hesitation.

Really shows how big/deep that hole is. Curious based on the new metal where the red bleachers will come up to.
