PORTSMOUTH, Va. - The city provided a status update Thursday on the construction project at the The Atlantic Union Bank & Trust Pavilion.

Officials said while construction won't be completed on time, the pavilion will still open this summer. The original date for completion was expected to be June 19.

In May 2018, city officials announced the canopy had a structural flaw.

Engineers noticed a deformity in the support structure that holds the tent canopy during a routine inspection. The engineering team said a potential critical condition existed at the structure and recommended removing the tent canopy and having an open-tent season for 2018.
