UT Begins Football Stadium Renovations

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Contractors are arriving to give the University of Tennessee's Neyland Stadium some $18.6 million in remodeling improvements.

Neyland, the nation's fourth largest collegiate football venue, won't be getting any more seats to add to is 102,038-seat capacity in the work begun this week.

But it will see concourse renovations, a new mezzanine on the first level of the west side, remodeled locker rooms, a new lettermen's meeting room at field level and a new media center for postgame interviews.

The work represents the second phase of a planned $115 million renovation project begun in 2005. The entire job could take eight to 12 years.
