CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A construction project on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall is quite the sight right now.

The Sprint Pavilion is looking bare as it gets a new fabric roof. Thursday, crews finished removing a bulk of the old fabric that was installed in 2005.

Crews plan to finish all the work in the winter months ahead of the new season kick-off in April.

Pavilion managers say the new roof will not look very different, but it should last much longer.
