Progress from April through November 2013 on both the east and west sides of the stadium.East side sink hole workWest side bleacher and wall repair/replacement
The east side work is a project by State College Borough. They dug to find both the throat of the sinkhole and also a solid foundation for building a reverse filter and water conveyance system. They maintained the current water conveyance structure to handle any storms that may arrive until they are ready to rebuild. The new conveyance system is now being built.
The west side work involves bleacher removal and excavation and rebuilding the retaining wall and then replacing the bleachers, sidewalk, and stonework.
