CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Construction on the Chautauqua Amphitheater has been put on hold after a restraining order was issued on Monday.
The New York State Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order on Monday that halts the construction on the Amphitheater.
The Chautauqua institution says they will continue to move forward with planning, logistics and procurement of materials.
A hearing has been scheduled for February 1.
Construction on the amphitheater had been approved in December.
The design look very similar to the current amphitheater, but changes include fewer pillar to improve sight lines, expanding the bowl with new seating, and improving accessibility, that will be ADA-compliant.
