Phase I of this significant renovation project will construct a new student section at the south end zone. Existing steel bleachers, concession stands, and utilities under and around the bleachers will be removed to create space for new concrete treads and risers creating a continuous concrete lower seating bowl all the way around the stadium. The existing loge structure will be removed, except for the area connected to the Carson Student Athlete Center. The south end of the stadium will be reconfigured to include dedicated student entrances, seating and standing areas, restrooms, enhanced concessions and food service, and band seating with access to the field. The stadium’s main concourse will be extended to connect seamlessly at the south end in order to optimize the use of concessions, restrooms, and the pedestrian walkway. Phase I also includes the infrastructure to ensure a smooth transition among phases, including modifications to the existing restrooms within Carson. Additionally, there will be some demolition in the north end zone upper seating which will allow the future phases to meet their scheduled completion dates.
