They just swung another steel riser support over the top and into place. It looks like they have already installed 3 of them today.

Hey you engineering types...what's the difference between red steel and gray steel? Just wondering.

Back in the 1910's and early 1920's, St. Anthony's of Padua church was being constructed in Wilmington. Many parishioners gave up their vacation's and volunteered those weeks to help with construction. This is fact as my grandfather was on of those individuals.

If you are so worried about when construction will be completed or that you may be just a little inconvenienced initially.......Here's your chance to ensure none of that happens!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Red steel is steel that has a sprayed-on paint primer.
Gray (galvanized steel) is the same steel, only it undergoes a process that plates it with a zinc-alloy to protect it from the elements.

Galvanized (gray) is used for all exposed or ground-contact framing. For all framing components above concrete and enclosed, the primed steel (red) is used and is cheaper.

I'm a second day selector and much of Sec D was already gobbled up by the Large Donors. I still got Sec D but had to go up a number of Rows higher. Barb Flemming was greeting people. Went smoothly...... most of the fans there were talking about how worried they were about the Stadium being ready for the opener. One older fan was grousing "where's all the steel!!".
It looks like they removed about 8 rows from the bottom of Sec D with the club windows and awning and about three rows from the bottom of Sec's C and E with the expanded entry ramps, so everyone got bumped up a bit I assume.

From what I have been told there is no view of the field from the Club with the exception of the President's box/patio. Those window doors at the bottom of Section D are for access to the President's box/patio.

Where is accessible seating for the "disabled"?

GF, I've been able to view.

The steel support for the lower seats is complete and looks like ground prep on the North Side this morning.

You'd have to think things will pick up significantly next week.........

The progress being made is now more visible (pans for concrete going in, seeing roadway/pathways, etc.) Fun to see.

Not a lot of progress in the last couple of days. Hopefully, work takes off with Commencement completed.
