ORLANDO (CityofOrlando.net) – Progress is quickly being made in the reconstruction of the Citrus Bowl. Since January, 80 percent of the old stadium has been demolished and the structure is evolving on a daily basis.
Crews are focusing on the installation of the new structure and seating bowl. Following placement of the building foundations, the pre-cast structural frame and seating bowl started to be raised in March and is now 30 percent complete.
The expanded footprint of the facility includes a structural steel frame that will house all of the new elevators, escalators and stair towers. That portion of the project started in April and is also approximately 30 percent complete.
Underground utility work has also started to prep for future slab pours/concourse buildings.
Over the next month, crews will work to install escalators and the masonry walls that will make up the new team facilities and operations buildings.
