Charlotte, NC – The construction of BB&T Ballpark — the future home of the Charlotte Knights, continues to progress.
– Recently, crews removed a crape myrtle tree from the site (photos attached). The tree, which was originally planted at the site in February of 1998, was re-planted in the median of the 6400 block of Old Reid Rd (about 30 feet from the intersection of Archdale Rd).
– Demolition of the Virginia Paper Company Building was completed last week. Work on the building began on Tuesday, October 2.
– 4th Street roadwork continues, as well as mass excavation.
The entire construction process can be viewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the BB&T Ballpark webcam. Here is a link to view the webcam: http://bit.ly/SFyZuP
