It's crunch-time for Super Bowl Village set-up crews. Everything opens Friday.
Official zip-line runs begin for people with a ticket to ride and a ribbon-cutting at 3:00 PM opens everything up to the public.
"It should be looking really good by this evening,” said Susan Baughman, Senior VP of Events . “Then we can finish dressings [Friday] morning."
The chaos you'll see if you head to Georgia Street is organized. Baughman said much of what's going on are last minute touches. She said the biggest hurdles have been spacing for vendors and the shear magnitude of this super project.
"Trying to control work going on on three blocks at the same time, when there is traffic still running in some cases, to be able to access the garages,” said Baughman. “ I think our main concern has been safety."
Don Haag said it's incredible how different everything looks, but he understands the work is far from over.
"You cannot really get a feel for the magnitude of the whole thing until you are actually down here,” he said. "They still have a lot of work to do, that is pretty obvious, but it is going to be great. I think it is going to be awesome."
Baughman says the host committee wanted to make this construction site open, so people could see all the changes being made first-hand. She admitted the added access has put a bit of a strain on the completion date.
"I would not say it is a bad thing. It is just a physical condition that was more than we thought. We had to take great care with that."
