Video: Washington's Husky Stadium Has Been Seriously Renovated, Permanent Endzones Added

Getting ready for football season.

It's no secret that Washington's Husky Stadium has been undergoing renovations since 2011 -- the Huskies actually played their games at CenturyLink Field last season, home of the Seattle Seahawks. The university is making a number of changes and additions to the venue, and lists some of them on its athletic site:

  • Premium seating program with luxury suites, patio suites and Club Husky
  • Track removed and the field lowered (4 feet) and shifted north (about 7 feet) to optimize seat values and sightlines
  • Football operations support building housing locker rooms, weight rooms, team meeting rooms, recruiting lounges, player lounges and coaches offices integrated into the west end zone
  • Complete demolition and reconstruction of the lower bowl and the south side stands
  • Renovation of the Don James Center
  • 200-stall parking garage constructed below the south bowl and stands
  • Permanent east end zone seating
  • Large landscaped plazas and grounds with no perimeter fencing

Today, Kiro 7 Seattle checked in on the renovations, and recorded a very cool video with aerial views of how everything is progressing:

Later on, the university athletics Twitter account tweeted a field-level picture of the newly-added permanent endzone:
