UK Athletics To Tailgaters: 'Please Pardon Our Dust'

UK Athletics officials say the construction project at Commonwealth Stadium will continue through the upcoming football season.

The $110 million project still has the goal of finishing renovations before the 2015 kickoff.

UK Athletics project manager Russ Pear says construction crews will work until Thursday on game weeks before cleaning up the construction area and setting up temporary fencing by Saturday morning.

Kentucky spokesman Tony Neely told the Lexington Herald-Leader that seating capacity will be down about 6,000 in 2014 compared with 2013 because of construction in the south upper deck.

The work will require some changes to the way fans enter Commonwealth Stadium on game days.

UK will kick off its 2014 season at home against Tennessee-Martin on Aug. 30.
