That’s about all that can be said about the dramatic changes already taking place inside and around the Pepsi Coliseum. The renovation project is not even two months old, but the guts of the Coliseum are almost completely removed and digging has already begun on the foundation inside the building.
The most obvious difference inside is all the light that pours into the building now that most of the glass block windows have had the covering material scraped off of them. It is now easy to imagine what it was like when the building originally opened back in 1939.
The New Arena is really taking shape now as well. More than 268 tons of steel will be used in this area and much of it has already been erected. Weather has been good to the construction schedule and everything is moving ahead. We’ll keep you posted!
