    East Side Improvements??

    Has anyone been fortunate to have seen the inside of the East side of JTS? I'm just curious as to how the improvements are looking? I would assume they are 90-95% completed by now. Any info is appreciated.

    I'm not going to lie, I thought this was going to be about improvements over by the fair.

    I thought the same. The stadium is much more exciting. I've seen it and it looks great, very similar to the west side. I would say about 85% done is more accurate.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The North entrances to the stadium are going to look pretty sweet as well.

    The old chain link fence around the stadium remains. I wouldnt be surprised if that was the last step of the project. Hopefully it gets replaced.

    The East side renovations are a little more hidden by the trees in the HOF grove from the road.

    Re: East Side Improvements??

    Someone had great pictures of the East side renovations a week or two ago. The look from University Boulevard hasn't really changed since the beginning of June or so minus grass growing in the hillside. The gate on the parking lot level was starting to go up when I got back to Ames Friday night. The north side is coming along and the brick looks to be completely done. The ramp up to the concourse looks done. Looks like they just have to do the actual gates part on the east side of the Jacobson Building (I didn't really look at the NW).

    I haven't been inside, but I did drive by there yesterday. Looks to me like all of the east side concessions/restrooms are done. They could well be finishing up inside with fixtures, etc., but the structures are done. The east gate is almost finished. The pillars of the gate are up and it looks like they are getting ready to add a canopy over them. Yesterday they were pouring concrete for the area connecting the gate to the sidewalk and parking lot. Going to be a nice small plaza area there.

    The NW and NE gates are identical with the NE gate being further along. Right now, they are done with the pillars and canopies and the walls blocking the view of the field. I had heard that the inside walls were going to be some sort of All-American or HOF display, but they are just blank walls right now. The NE side has concrete poured around the gate area and looks basically done. The NW side had forms up, so I assume that that work was coming soon. Fencing had yet to be done, but I would bet that it goes up quickly as soon as the gates are finished. I will be interested to hear reports from those people going to the Shrine game this weekend and the CGC open scrimmage in a few weeks.
