Work has begun on the plaza, and the activity has started to impact I-394 traffic.
Somebody asked how long it would be before the tarp had a sponsor. Well, not very long.

Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
The rules were clearly posted next to this new entry point on the Seventh Street side. I have no problem with the rules!
From the Downtown Council's 2025 Plan, a Metrodome "Revelopment" and a strong indication of where they think a new Vikings stadium should go.
For $19.95 you can load up your plate (one trip only)
From the ground beneath the troubled skyway.
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...
I had to hold the camera as far over my head as I could to get this shot, in which the infield is finally visible. It's a spot made for your average Timberwolves player.
Secret entrance exposed!
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...

Winter approaches. But one day baseballs will fly where now there are cranes.

Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
There's the opening through which the groundskeeping equipment will emerge (and disappear).
Loading docks to the right, VIP entrances to the left.
This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
Noah is checking out the ample leg room and truly exemplary sight lines.
I set up my late inning "office" at the drink rail behind section 206
I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
Yes, TC is smiling.
