INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Hoping to avoid another tragedy like the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair all temporary Super Bowl structures will be given a thorough safety inspection.

Work has already begun on some of the 80 temporary structures being set up in and around downtown Indianapolis.

Code enforcement inspectors will be in place during Super Bowl events to make sure the structures are being used the way they were intended and also that they're safe.

The stage at the State Fair was a temporary structure when a strong gust of wind blew it over, killing seven people and injuring several others.
