Here’s a stadium expansion update for fans who haven’t been out to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium since Sept. 5th. Looks like construction has claimed a couple hundred more seats between the 40 yard lines. Work crews continue to do their thing despite all the recent rain. Not a dry seat in the house today, trust me.

The pre-cast concrete for the steps and seats in the upper section is expected to be complete by the end of October, followed by the completion of the luxury boxes. The terrace connecting the east and west sides of the stadium will start in December and should be complete in early 2010.
