University of Louisville Wrapping Up Papa John’s Stadium Expansion
Posted by Rob Kinchler on June 17, 2010 at 2:44 PM.

Increasing capacity from 42,000 to 57,000, the new expansion is supported by a steel frame.  Check out the pictures in the link below.  Steel columns are partially wrapped in concrete for architectural considerations.  Raker beams, lateral bracing, and gravity supports are all framed with steel.  Built by Abel Construction out of Louisville, the east side entrance includes a new gate with two massive 50 to 75-foot columns supporting the stadium name.  It has a new jumbotron video screen added at the south end of the stadium at the rear of the new walkway connecting the east and west sides. The Louisville football stadium expansion is almost complete.
