Work on one of the side panels
As mentioned earlier, one of the best climate-controlled views of construction is from the 7th floor elevator lobby in the A ramp. (That's Noah getting his first glimpse of the new ballpark.)
Locations for ticket machines near the Hrbek outdoor plaza
The lights have covers on the top, presumably to reduce light pollution

One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.

The entry from the platform to the ballpark.
Viewed from the sidewalk on Seventh Street. No skyway infringement needed.
That's some scary-ass scaffolding, if you ask me.
The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
Party deck down the right field line
Just to the right, more ticket machines. These things are everywhere.
The Pro Shop
A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon

Viewed from the A ramp.
Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
The tracks on the right will be moved to the newly-cleared area on the left. The edge of the ballpark will be about where the rocks and dirt meet.
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
The steel cage expands.
