The new Husky Stadium is “99.5 percent” completed, according to Washington associate athletic director Chip Lydum, who led the media on a nearly two-hour tour of the $280.6 million renovation.

Afterward, AD Scott Woodward and Lydum held a 30-minute press conference. I’ll have more notes and quotes out of that later, Larry Stone will have a column and photojournalists Dean Rutz and Ken Lambert will offer photos and a video.

Until then, there’s a quick (amateur) video I did at the bottom of the post.
