NEW TURF, OTHER TOUCH-UPS FOR EMMITT AND THE 'BOYS
Published June 3, 1996
Texas Stadium is being fitted with a fresh artificial surface and 21 new luxury suites behind both end zones, according to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Completion of the suites marks the end of an expansion project begun in '93, when 59 boxes were added. Additions will bring the total number of suites to 373, the most of any stadium in any sport. Despite future renovation plans, including an expansion to 104,000 and installation of a grass field, the 15-year old turf is being replaced in order to improve drainage, safety and overall appearance. The redesign will also include a perimeter track to aid camera trucks. Work should be finished by July 15, two weeks before the first preseason game (Richard Alm, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 6/1).
