LOOKING AHEAD: AS OF NOVEMBER 2018, THERE ARE ONLY 16 MONTHS LEFT UNTIL THE GATES AT GLOBE LIFE FIELD OPEN N early 1,000 construction workers will continue to work around the clock to fulfill the March 2020 opening date. The seating bowl construction will continue in the coming months, working its way to connect with the office building in the southeast corner. Construction on the roof track began in early September, with the construction of roof trusses marking the first major step of the roof installation process. Erection of the roof steel will begin later this fall in the southeast area of the site, the same section where the first steel was erected. The ballpark site will continue to rapidly transform toward completion. This time next year, a majority of the facility will be completed, with exterior construction nearing the finish line. Physical seats are also expected to be installed next fall, with the final months focused on finishing the interior spaces, as well as the field and service level. In the final months of construction, crews will be finishing out the clubs and working on the field. Around December 2019, furniture will begin going in, said Jack Hill, Rangers' senior vice president of project development . “There will be a million painters and electricians putting the fixtures in place to get ready to open,” Hill said.
