Ohio State Football: Permanent lighting added to top of Ohio Stadium (Photo)


This summer, it’s been no secret that Ohio Stadium has been undergoing some upgrades in anticipation of the 2014 college football season getting underway, and with that, the school revealed one of the newest additions to the Horseshoe recently.

On Tuesday, Ohio State revealed the first photo of the permanent lighting that has been added to the top of Ohio Stadium, brightening things up a little bit going forward.

According to cleveland.com, in addition to the lights, work is continuing on the entire football facility.

Construction continued Tuesday at Ohio Stadium, with the tunnels from both locker rooms dug up as part of the $13.7 million construction project and 2,600-seat addition to the south stands. The OSU tunnel will be wider than the one in the past with a non-slip surface, so the players can really get going heading onto the field.

Also, crews continue to work on adding permanent lights to the top of Ohio Stadium.

Those lights will come in handy with the Buckeyes hosting three night games for the first time ever in 2014 and more night games certainly ahead in the future. The installation above the east and west walls will “crown” the stadium with high definition sports lighting from MUSCO.

We all can’t wait to see what these renovations look like when all is said and done and the season gets underway.
