Lambeau Field expansion on schedule, budget


GREEN  BAY (WKOW) – Lambeau Field's expansion project is on schedule and on budget, according to project managers.

So far, the major steel work is done at the south end zone and most of the concrete is poured. Crews are also working to install new seats. By next season, there will be 6,700 new seats.

The Green Bay Packers have spent about $75 million on the expansion, with 92 percent of that money staying in Wisconsin and 68 percent spent in northern Wisconsin, according to team officials.

Green Bay Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey told WLUK-TV the process for determining who gets what seat has begun. Popkey says seat requests will be done by seniority, in terms of how long they've been season ticket holders and when they put in their request.
