    In my three years here it has snowed at least a little bit every year, but only once did it snow enough (the ice storm) to slow down the average construction job any more than a cold rain would. Usually whatever snow falls mostly melts on contact.

    Oh dear.... we're doomed...

    The Vikings stadium was built in just over 2 years....and the temperature there is like -100F on good days....meanwhile last year in Eugene it rarely had highs below 50.

    forget the snow: pouring concrete in cold weather (cold = sub-50 by this metric) is problematic.

    Yawn.... an inch or 2 of snow...and very rare. They should just stop construction now...

    Personally I've never seen snow in Eugene.

    Snow? In Eugene?

    I'll ask next time I run into a construction guy...but I suspect the weather won't affect the pace...never stopped them in snowy cold Minnesota or Illinois...

    by the way where did this report of being ahead of schedule come from?

    i know nothing about the construction industry in that part of the world, but how many rain and/or snow incidents will it take to knock the schedule out of whack?

    The Autzen shuttle has worked pretty well. I just see a big hole in the ground as an opportunity to help remedy a parking shortage, but the construction timeline probably would not have allowed it anyway.

    No... parking is not part of the plan...

    Here is parking for nearby Knight Arena ..

    It's pretty lousy...
