Light Project To Wrap Up Next Week
Knowles said not all of the new transformers needed for the high-tech lighting system have arrived yet, and are being shipped to Jonesboro from Georgia. The new lights were manufactured by Iowa-based Musco Sports Lighting, which illuminates some of the top outdoor sports venues in the U.S., including Notre Dame Stadium and Iowa's Kinnick Stadium. Musco technicians are assisting with the installation of the lights, which are expected to more than double the candlepower of the facility, while also being more energy efficient.
"This new system will actually have fewer bulbs, but more than twice as much candle wattage than the old lights," said Knowles.
Knowles also said yesterday's lightning storm in Jonesboro forced workers to temporarily halt work on the project, which also contributed to the delay.
The veteran ASU administrator also mentioned a couple of other subtle but often requested changes that will be in place at Liberty Bank Stadium in time for the August 31 home opener against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
- Tailgate City has been improved with the addition of 24 new electrical outlets
- The concession areas have been re-modeled to make waiting lines move quicker for fans.
