DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins say their $500 million stadium renovation will be completed as scheduled and in time for the team’s final exhibition game Sept. 1.
Work continues 24 hours a day on upgrades that include a canopy. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Friday the stadium will be ready for the preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans.
The Dolphins say the Miami Hurricanes will open their season at the stadium as scheduled Sept. 3 against Florida A&M.
Ross says the Dolphins’ 2015 and 2016 seasons left an eight-month window for the renovation, which normally would have taken about 12 months.
He says there’s no backup plan for a Dolphins game site if the stadium isn’t ready on time.
