Construction Update
Amid Clutter of Construction, Wrigley Field Preps for Opener

Wrigley Field

The marquee was just returned to its rightful spot last week.

As the Cubs head home to Chicago from their season-opening trip out west that saw them looking like they could easily outscore the Bears, crews at Wrigley Field were busy power-washing, sweeping, and dusting to get ready for Monday’s home opener.

The 2015 season saw the Cubs open in a ballpark far behind schedule. The bleachers weren’t completely ready for fans’ backsides until June, and let’s not even talk about the restroom debacle that was the first series at The Friendly Confines last April.

The team is in the midst of Project 1060, which in addition to renovating the old ballpark, also includes the construction of an office building and plaza, a new hotel, and a broadcast center just beyond left field.
