A detail from the above image shows that the section signage is now in place
The glare problem.
The bridge is Seventh Street.
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.

We'll be packed into the first five rows of section 136. Hey, Wilson! I'm bringing my glove!
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.
An ice cream salad cone -- er, Walk-a-Taco
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
Looking down what was Third Avenue, and will be a freeway entrance ramp beneath the outfield stands.

Nathan greeting the other pitchers on the all-Metrodome team (October 4, 2009)
Three weeks ago this was a patch of scruffy trees. Now it's a patio. In case you were wondering, that's where I've been...

Window area sketched by the limestone
Winter approaches. But one day baseballs will fly where now there are cranes.
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.
The Pantheon (with inset of the magic eye)

We took refuge for a time in the Twins Pub where you can drink a beer (or just hang out) and listen to some ballpark tunes. The organ is decorated with a TC (of course) and what looked like drawings which Sue has received from kids.
Staircase entrance. You cannot miss them.
Mound from the other side
This will be a great sight on game nights.
The Puckett Atrium
CBP: retro in facade only
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
