SEATTLE -- Three days away from the Broncos' season opener at the University of Washington, and the KTVB crew has landed in the Emerald City to begin our coverage. Mark Johnson took a quick tour of the campus and around the new Husky Stadium. One unfinished piece could cause quiet a headache for fans going to and from the game.

Officials assure that the stadium will be ready however an unfinished walkway over the road in front of the main entrance to the stadium could force a traffic issues between cars and fans needing to use the crosswalk.

The project cost upwards of $280 million, and added amenities such as luxury suites, a state-of-the-art locker room and seating closer to the field.

The new stadium will hold 70,168 fans, which is actually fewer than the 72,500 it used to hold. Officials say wider aisles and a smaller student section account for the change.
