April 11 marks 300 days and counting until Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

Listen:


Super Bowl Committee Chair Mark Miles says the committee and its volunteers are at, or ahead, of schedule in every respect.

Miles says they can't, and don't, worry about the ongoing labor issues; they just continue to work to be ready to host the game.

Miles says the eastside legacy project is progressing well, with six major projects underway now totalling $35 million.

He says one aspect of the project involves the Metropolitan Board of Realtors working to combat homelessness in the area.

They committed to rehabbing or building 32 homes which would be available to rent for families trying to avoid homelessness. Six families have been moved in so far.
