Dolphins begin stadium modernization project


Less than a week after a successful vote in front of the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners, the Miami Dolphins got started on their multi-year "stadium modernization" project this weekend.

The project, according to the team's website, will result in all new seats, a shade canopy, new video boards, and concourse and concession improvements. The team expects the project to be completed by fall of 2016.

“Today is an exciting day for the Miami Dolphins and South Florida as we mark the beginning of our comprehensive stadium modernization project,” Dolphins and Sun Life Stadium president and chief executive officer Tom Garfinkel said.

“Once complete, the stadium will serve as a global destination that will bring a diverse set of world-class events and significant economic benefits to Miami-Dade County.”

Here is a rendering of the stadium improvements.
