GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - With the Packers making the playoffs on the field, construction crews are working hard on improvements around the field. A $143 million expansion effort that will add thousands of new seats and other amenities is in full swing at Lambeau Field. Director of Facility Operations Ted Eisenreich says the mild weather is helping things get done at Lambeau Field. “We just getting started, we got a long way to go yet.” Eisenreich said.
In the north end zone, crews are installing a new stadium gate for club-seat holders, six elevators, a rooftop viewing platform, and an additonal ADA enterance. The south end zone will have four levels with 6,700 new general seating seats along with concessions, bathrooms, and 2 new video boards. Concrete is being poured, steel is going up in the north end zone and within the next month you’ll likely be able to see the vision for the south end zone. The project will be fully complete by the start of the 2013 season. A portion of the expansion is being self financed by the Packers through an ongoing stock sale that has already generated $62.5 million dollars with more than 250,000 shares of stock in the team sold.
