Well remember, they never said the flex field was going to be done by Memorial Day. Only the Amphitheatre.

Also, as I attempted to state in my previous post, Khan was saying the amphitheater would only be ready to host shows, but not necessarily entirely 100% final punch list complete.

^ maybe so, but the flex field appears to be easier to complete than the ampitheater.

Jags confirmed yesterday that construction is on schedule for the amphitheater, and the flex field will be completed six weeks after the amphitheater opens.

People keep curiously doubting these professionals. Quite bizarre.

^ Not sure if it's doubt as much as amazement due to having watched many projects less than half the size take twice as long.

Khan has shown time after time he doesn't like things to drag on and they will be completed when he says they will. The Empire State Building was built in 410 days. Meanwhile Berkman II is pushing 10 years... Lol

The key (for me, at least) is the unreserved "we are on schedule" news. Why doubt them? Why keep talking about other projects they weren't involved with? The FlexField superstructure seems to be clearly throwing off many folks. Little more than one month away for Tedeschi Trucks. We'll know soon.

More just curious than doubt, I am sure most on here want it to excel. You seem to be taking this a little to serious.

Supposedly, the last major piece of steel went up today. Also, walls have started to go up on the flex field. Progress is being made with 38 days until opening day.
