Demolition of the Ivor Wynne stadium is progressing on schedule and the public is taking notice, according to Coralee Secore, Hamilton's manager of Pan Am Initiatives.

"Every time I go down there, there are people taking pictures," she said.

"It's such a big site. I'm constantly in shock at how much space there is. It's really exciting."

Demolition began in December and should be complete by the end of February, Secore said. At that point, workers will begin excavating the site in preparation to begin the construction of the new stadium in May.

Construction is scheduled to be completed on July 1, 2014. The Tiger-Cats will move in that summer, then move out from June 8 to Aug. 6, 2015, to accommodate the Pan American Games.

The new stadium will be constructed by Ontario Sports Solutions.
