The folks at Virginia Tech weren’t kidding when they said the Lane Stadium video board replacement project would begin just as soon as graduation was finished.
I drove by the stadium yesterday to see if anything had started. It certainly had. The process of stripping the old scoreboard had begun in the morning (left) and looked like it was practically finished by the evening (right). Click on the photo to make it bigger.
I wrote about what the specs of the new video board will be back in February.
A quick refresher: it’ll be 48.2 feet tall by 108.2 feet wide, which would make it roughly the eighth-biggest nationally. It’s supposed to be finished by Aug. 1, just before the Hokies report back for camp.
